Kabaret Dietrich

Melbourne Cabaret Festival presents

A delicious theatrical affair unveiling the alluring enigma of Marlene Dietrich through song and story.

A beautifully rendered biography created and performed by Nikki Nouveau.

At one time Hollywood's highest paid actress, Marlene Dietrich died penniless. Her fascinating story is re-imagined 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. Her influence on modern icons such as Bowie and Madonna was undeniable.

Featuring a repertoire of cabaret classics, 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 who has trained in musical saw playing in NYC.

Kabaret Dietrich is a uniquely inspiring interpretation of one of the greatest style icons of our time. Bookings highly recommended.

-Fourth Wall Media

"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"
