Berlin Premiere

The Cast - die Opernband
Oper macht Spaß

The fun that performers have on stage can be contagious and an audience quickly infected by it. Evidence of this is offered by THE CAST, six young classically trained singers and their rousing program “Opera Is Fun!” These brilliant vocal artists from New Zealand, Canada, the United States and Germany sing masterpieces from the operatic and operetta repertoire, all presented with charm and wit and imbued by fresh ideas.    In contemporary arrangements but still respecting the work, the vocal parts with piano accompaniment create worthwhile listening pleasure not only for connoisseurs.  The welcome (and perfectly functioning!) side effect is an irresistible red plush carpet that is rolled out for classical-music neophytes. The choice of works is informed by the affectations, dreams and sometimes nothing less than traumas of the protagonists who lend a personal, jocular or insightful note to each piece through their presentation in German, English or enchanting “Denglish.”

Carrington-Brown
Dream A Little Dream

From Bach to Bowie and from Knef to Klezmer - plus the cello in a new show with the classically trained, quirky cellist Rebecca Carrington and the cool, powerful voice of her partner Colin Brown.For the first time, the two of them will not only be accompanied by Joe, a 200 year old, at times rather jealous cello, but also a piano.The name of the new band member and how Joe gets along with his new rival remains to be seen. In their new programme, the two Berlin-based entertainers deal with their own desires and dreams, but also throw an amused look at German everyday things with their typical British humour and present them in charming songs, such as “Steuerberaterblues” or “Für mich soll’s deutsche Regeln regnen”. A brilliant combination of music, British comedy and the endless trials and tribulations of the universe.

Pigor singt - Benedikt Eichhorn muss begleiten.
Pigor & Eichhorn scheitern – Berlin Spezial

Damit endlich Ruhe ist.

Is it chanson, comedy, cabaret, concert or a show? You could call it SalonHipHop and CabaretCool but they still don't quite capture the genre of the all-encompassing gifts and talents of the Thomas Pigor and Benedikt Eichhorn duo.They are extremely political and intellectual, hilariously funny and witty, they broach love and despair, the restrictions of human existence as well as the little challenges of everyday life, for which they have specially invented the “chanson shortie”. They rock against internet madness, Benedikt Eichhorn sings beautiful ballads about love and all the while Thomas Pigor mocks and scorns him mischievously.They have performed as a duo, with a band, with a DJ and jazz musicians, even with four Pigorettes - they have won every prize there is and they reinvent themselves with each new programme.

She takes us away to discover brand new facets of Jewish culture. Songs you've never heard before, Jewish classics and her own songs are presented with humour and an unbridled zest of life. Her soft clear voice and charisma touch the listener and leave the audience feeling animated.Harry Ermer (piano), Daniel Zenke (bass) and Philipp Schmitt (drums).

Désirée Nick
Retro-Muschi

She is an excellent actress and has performed on many of Germany’s most respected stages. And no cabaret star anywhere can match her in sharpness of tongue. She has built an empire alone with her big Berlin mouth and, thanks to her golden hair, her waxed-to-death mound of Venus, her similarity to grandma Cher, her hate of handbags, her hard but knowledgeable suggestions to all homosexual couturiers, her criticism of stewardesses and trolley dollies and her explicit policy of low expectations, she remains the original that her rivals bitterly strive to emulate. In an epoch in which breasts of granite and a brain like a Swiss cheese suffice to be hailed a starlet, the actress, bestselling author and style icon La Nick deserves to be crowned the Empress of Entertainment. La Nick – dit is Berlin! The better your German, the more you will appreciate Désirée Nick’s eloquent humour, but the Berlin artist is also a worthwhile experience even without words.
