Some for Laughs, Some for Tears: Jewish Cabaret from Europe and Beyond
The New Budapest Orpheum Society
The Grammy-nominated New Budapest Orpheum Society, an Ensemble-in-Residence at the University of Chicago, draws upon a wide range of repertoires, many forgotten, others preserved in European archives, all poignantly bearing witness to the great tradition of Jewish cabaret. The NBOS will perform works from their repertoire and works recently rediscovered by ‘Performing the Jewish Archive’ researchers.
Pre-concert talk – 6.45pm: ‘From archive to stage: a Cabaret revival’. New Budapest Orpheum Society’s Philip Bohlman and ilya Levinson join ‘Out of the Shadows’ researchers Lisa Peschel, Simo Muir and Joseph Toltz: How do musical works make the transition from research to performance?
