The musical Cabaret is 50 years old
It's 50 years since Cabaret, the musical based on Christopher Isherwood's novel 'Goodbye to Berlin' was premiered on New York's Broadway. To celebrate this golden anniversary there's a big production of the spectacular touring the whole of Spain this year and luckily for us, Palma is one of the stops en route.
Palma Auditorium on the seafront Paseo Maritimo becomes the seedy Kit Kat Klub for just four nights from 22nd to 25th September when Sally Bowles, the Master of Ceremonies, and a host of dancing boys and girls take to the stage. Set in the decadent times of the inter war Weimar republic, the musical hints at the rise of the Nazi party and the end of free spirited fun.
A colourful cast belt out the songs that made the musical and the film which catapulted Liza Minelli to stardom; Wilkommen, Money, Mein Herr and many more. With heavy make-up and lingerie galore, and that's just the blokes, this production is a feast for the eyes as well as the ears, and well worth going to see.
You can buy tickets online for the seven shows over the four days and they'll cost from €29 to €60 depending on the seats. And if you are going, remember to 'leave your troubles outside, because in here, life is beautiful!'
