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 Bösendorfer 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).
For more information on the cabaret series please call +1 (212) 628-6200, ext. 485.

"Her voice power and variety are second to none" Le Monde
Bodacious and feminist, glamorous and fearless, Adrienne Haan presents Between Fire and Ice, a diabolical evening depicting Berlin in the 1920s: a time of change, challenge, and scorned traditions, when Germany was experimenting with a new form of government and the nation was longing for latitude.

"Completely stellar…slyly subversive" The Wall Street Journal
Mining his début pop album, Nova, and drawing inspiration from Weimar-era Berlin, Kim Smith teases an eclectic program featuring the music of Friedrich Holländer, Kurt Weill, Madonna, Kylie Minogue, Hanns Eisler, and many unexpected others, weaving a transient and doomed tapestry of irony, excess, and love at the edge of catastrophe.
