Last Tango in Berlin – The Best of Ute
Friday 20 October 7.30pm
World renowned chanteuse Ute Lemper makes a welcome return to the UK stage performing her celebrated show Last Tango in Berlin – The Best of Ute.
The journey starts in Berlin with Ute’s root repertoire of Brecht and Weill and the Berlin Cabaret songs. It continues into the poetic universe of the French chansons by Brel, Piaf, Ferre and further to the Argentinian world of Tango by Astor Piazzolla. Ute walks through the backstreets of Paris, Berlin, New York and Buenos Aires and lets ancient ghosts with new faces tell the stories of the lost, of love, survival, passion, dreams, societies, the past and the future. Ute also performs her own songs to connect the yesterday with the today through her own stories about these places and about life.
