A beautifully rendered musical biography of Marlene Dietrich created and performed by Nikki Nouveau.
At one time Hollywood's highest paid actress, Marlene Dietrich died penniless. Her fascinating story is reimagined through her famous character Lola Lola in the classic 1930s film 'The Blue Angel'.
The show is set in Weimar Republic Berlin and unmasks the trials of an ageing film star, from her early beginnings as a musician, an under-recognised performance career in cabaret and theatre, through to her emergence as a shining legend of the silver screen. Dietrich was at heart a gentleman, prepared to take on a man's world in a man's uniform with a man's daring.
Featuring a repertoire of classic songs, including Falling In Love Again, Lili Marlene and La Vie En Rose, delivered in German, French and English with accompaniment by piano, accordion and musical saw, played by Nouveau.
Kabaret Dietrich is a uniquely inspiring interpretation of one of the greatest style icons of our time.
"Beautifully rendered biography through song, dance & music of legendary Marlene Dietrich"
-Fourth Wall Media
"Nouveau in full voice is mesmerising and her phrasing between singing and narrating is flawless. Nikki Nouveau is the epitome of class and reinvention"
- Theatre People
"Nouveau played a stunning musical accompaniment to her rendition of Falling In Love Again as part of her entrancing Fringe World tribute to the great chanteuse Marlene Dietrich, bringing out a saw and bow and whipping up a haunting melody. Who would have thought a carpenter's saw could sound so fine?"
-Perth Cafe Culture
"Nikki nails the unique timbre of Dietrich's voice and accent"
- Toorak Times
