Cabaret at Café Sabarsky in the Neue Galerie continues its unique series devoted primarily to German and Austrian music of the 1890s to 1930s, some of the most fertile and volatile music created in the modern era. The intimate 60-seat room is exquisitely appointed with period objects, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann and furniture by Adolf Loos, and features a Yamaha S4 grand piano.
All performances are at 9 p.m., preceded by a prix-fixe dinner at 7 p.m.
Combined cost is $110 (dinner $65, performance $45; purchased together).

“The prince of German song” Der Tagesspiegel
German-Dutch singer Sven Ratzke has won prestigious prizes and fervent fans in Berlin, Amsterdam, Edinburgh, and Vienna. He is now poised to take New York by storm. His return to Café Sabarsky will be a sly spectacle of Weimar hits, channeling inspiration from classic vaudeville, 1920s cabaret, and French chanson.
Greta Keller and Lotte Lenya, two extraordinary performers whose lives were bifurcated by war, are at the heart of this program. Singing in German, French and English, the renowned Austrian actress and singer Andrea Eckert takes us on a thrilling journey through the lives, loves and losses of these two remarkable performers.
