Programs and Events

Cabaret at Café Sabarsky in the Neue Galerie continues its unique series devoted primarily to German and Austrian music of the 1890s to 1930s, some of the most fertile and volatile music created in the modern era. The intimate 60-seat room is exquisitely appointed with period objects, including lighting fixtures by Josef Hoffmann and furniture by Adolf Loos, and features a Bösendorfer grand piano.

Every season, the museum presents a series of documentaries and feature films that engage with central themes of the art on display. These films are selected by the curatorial staff, and shed light on the deeper motivations of artists, give insight into the time period, or demonstrate the ongoing influence of turn-of-the-century art and thought on today's culture. Films are presented free of charge on select Mondays at 4 p.m. in Café Fledermaus.

Gifted young musicians perform in the Café Sabarsky on select Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. This series is presented in partnership with the Perlman Music Program. Recitals are offered free for members; $25, regular admission. 

Upcoming performance dates are March 1, April 12, May 3, and May 17. At this time, registration is open for Members only. Members may register by contacting [email protected]. Registration for non-members will begin February 8.
