Praised by The Telegraph as 'a gorgeous, smoky voice', Ute Lemper will grace Hong Kong stage again in 2017.

 

Lemper’s charismatic voice has charmed audience all around the world.  She is a celebrated interpreter of Berlin cabaret, French chansons, works of Kurt Weill and music from a wide range of culture.  Lemper has left her indelible mark on the stage, in films and as a recording artist.  She received a Moliere Award and a Laurence Olivier Award, worked with Peter Zadek and Maurice Bejart with a ballet created for her, and recorded new songs that are specially created for her.

 

Last Tango in Berlin is a showcase of Lemper’s best throughout her career.  The journey starts in Berlin with her root repertoire of cabaret songs.  There she will wander through the French streets with chansons by Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel and continue to walk through corners of the world.  Her music and mesmerising voice will tell the stories of love and loss, present and past with a uniquely personal touch.

Last Tango in Berlin

 

This concert touches on all the different musical chapters of Ute Lemper’s main repertoire of jazz, tango and ethnic musical influences, yet also leaves a lot of space for open improvisations and great moments of virtuosity.  The journey starts in Berlin with her root repertoire of Brecht and Weill and the Berlin cabaret songs.  It continues into the poetic universe of the French chansons by Brel, Piaf, Ferre and further to the Argentinian world of tango by Piazzolla.  Lemper walks through the backstreets of Paris, Berlin, New York and Buenos Aires and let ancient ghosts with new faces tell the stories of lost, love, survival, passion, dreams, societies, the past and the future.  She also performs her own songs to connect yesterday with today through her own stories about these places and life.
