CABARET AT CAFÉ SABARSKY

The Cabaret Series continues its union of modern Austrian cuisine with classic European music of the 1890s to 1930s, experienced within the period-inspired Café Sabarsky.

Guests enjoy a three-course, prix-fixe menu beginning at 7 p.m., followed by the performance at 9 p.m. in the intimate setting of the Café. The 60-seat room is exquisitely appointed with Wiener Werkstätte designs, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann and furniture by Adolf Loos, and also features a magnificent Bösendorfer grand piano. Performances are dedicated to some of the most fertile and volatile music created in the modern era—Austrian and German Cabaret, and the genre's commitment to questioning social mores through humor, storytelling, and wit.

All performances are at 9 p.m., preceded by a prix-fixe dinner at 7 p.m. Ticket cost is $140 per person. ($65/person non-refundable performance fee charged upon booking. Dinner $75/person, charged on the evening of the performance. Tax, gratuity, and beverages are not included.)

Seating is shared, though Members may make special seating requests. For more information call 212 628 6200 ext 485.

KIM DAVID SMITH

Australian Kim David Smith conjures the glitter, doom, and decadence of 1920’s Berlin with “Morphium Kabarett.” Named for the sensual, Spoliansky-penned waltz, this program features the standards of Hollaender, Weill, and Spoliansky, mixed with Kylie Minogue, The Supremes, and many unexpected others, in a neo-Weimar cabaret fantasia.

REBECCA COMERFORD

Thursday, November 2
 

From concert halls to beer halls, from the French Revolution to the Weimar Republic, "Songs of Resistance and Rebellion" celebrates the great art of protest songs and the music that gave a voice to the voiceless. Mezzo soprano Rebecca Comerford and pianist Anna Dagmar traverse the worlds of opera, jazz, folk, and musical theatre in an unforgettable night that is both powerful and incisive.

SANDA WEIGL

Thursday, November 9
 

To call Weigl’s voice “powerful” would be an understatement. With her impressive vocal range, her interpretations are dramatic, even theatrical. Jewish-Romanian-German Weigl first achieved fame as a teenage member of one of East Germany’s most popular rock bands. She returns to Café Sabarsky with a program of songs and stories from Weimar, one of the greatest theatrical eras in European history.
