UPCLOSE II – SERIOUS CABARET - LEAVING BERLIN WITH MARY CAREWE

Gorilla Bar
Manchester

Camerata Principal Players  
Mary Carewe  vocals

UpClose is our eclectic series of laid-back concerts in some of the city’s most interesting and unique venues, shining a light on hidden gems, both in terms of the music and the venues themselves. Relax and unwind with a drink and enjoy an eclectic blend of classical and contemporary music at close quarters.

With the rise of Nazism and Hitler’s Chancellorship in 1933, many musicians, artists and composers left Germany spreading their influence around the globe. This programme delves into the world of Berlin cabaret and political theatre between 1900-1933 and then beyond. Versatile soprano Mary Carewe joins Camerata principal players in a darkly entertaining programme featuring songs by Schoenberg, Zemlinksy, Spoliansky, Weill, Eisler, Hollaender and Gershwin, including ‘Falling in love again’, ‘Mack the Knife’, ‘Chuck out the men’, ‘Alone in a Big City’ and many more.

‘Mary Carewe, whose voice travels effortlessly from contemporary classical to Broadway and Hollywood, has a sweet-toned soprano with a dash of lemon and spice.’ The Times
