Inspired by the Budapest Orpheum Society in fin de siècle Vienna, the
new Budapesters from Chicago celebrate the diversity of Jewish cabaret.
The program selected by the Jewish Museum Berlin is a journey back in
time to the German-Jewish history of the 1930s and the music that
accompanied it – poignant, controversial, tragic. The cabaret evening
reflects the fate of musicians and critics of the time and acts of
destruction and survival. The show will be hosted primarily in German
and most songs will be German, with some songs in Yiddish, Hebrew, and
The New Budapest Orpheum Society, an Ensemble-in-Residence of the University of Chicago/USA, in cooperation with the MusikSalon Berlin of the Ethnological Museum, National Museums in Berlin.
