Ute Lemper: Paris, Paris!

Smetana Hall in Municipal House, 7:00 PM

Sunday Jun 25

Defin­ing Ute Lem­per is no easy feat. Is she more of an ac­tress than a singer or the other way round? Ei­ther way the New York based Ger­man artist is a highly es­teemed painter and com­poser.  Even though her cre­ative web spans a num­ber of fields, you’d be hard pushed to find any weak link along the way. From Berlin cabaret, Mar­lene Di­et­rich and Edith Piaf, she is most well-known for Brecht’s in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the works of Kurt Weil and star roles in world cal­i­bre mu­si­cals in­clud­ing Lola in The Blue An­gel and Velma Kelly in Chicago. In a re­cent pro­ject she wrote a cy­cle of songs based on Paulo Coelo’s novel "Man­u­script Found in Ac­cra".

Work­ing along­side Vince Men­doza, for this year’s con­cert Ute Lem­per has put to­gether a new pro­gramme pri­mar­ily draw­ing its in­spi­ra­tion from 20thcen­tury French mu­sic.

We’re con­vinced that her per­for­mance dur­ing this year’s fes­ti­val will of­fer an ex­cep­tional ex­pe­ri­ence for you and us both!
