The Story of Cabaret in Music & Words
Elena dtm Lorenzi – vocals
Stefano Marzanni – piano
Journey into the world of Cabaret – from Parisian bistros to the clubs of decadent 1930s Berlin….Elena dtm Lorenzi and Stefano Marzanni bring to life songs made famous by Edith Piaf and Dalida, from the satire of Mischa Spoliansky to the revolutionary spirit of Kurt Weill.
Much more than a concert of cabaret songs, Elena Lorenzi, accompanied by Stefano Marzanni, is not only a great singer and performer, she is also passionate about the history of cabaret, and is dedicated to telling the real story – from lyrical romance and love to dark biting satire, politics and existentialist reflections on the meaning of life.
“Those smokey, stylish Parisian jazz clubs and edgy pre-war Berlin cabarets…..truly come to life again in Classic Cabaret”
“atmospheric, stirring and deeply moving”
