4 February to 10 February (6pm & 7pm Nightly) @ Opticum at The Showman’s Fair, The Urban Orchard, Perth Cultural Centre •
Presented by Nikki Nouveau •
Nikki Nouveau presents the fascinating life of Marlene Dietrich through song and story, reimagined through her famous character Lola Lola in the classic 1930s film ‘The Blue Angel’. The show is set in Berlin during the Weimar era, exploring the alluring enigma of Dietrich and 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. Featuring a repertoire of cabaret classics, including ‘Falling In Love Again’ and ‘La Vie En Rose’ accompanied by piano, accordion and musical saw. A delicious affair delivered in German, French and English.
