05/22/2019 | Berlin, Mon Amour (new show!)

The Triad Theatre NYC

Adrienne Haan presents her new soirée Berlin, Mon Amour, celebrating the 100th Centennial of the Weimar Republic. On August 11, 1919, the Weimar Constitution was signed by then-president of the German Reich, Friedrich Ebert, which was the beginning of a new political and cultural movement in Germany, constantly threatened by failed uprisings of the left wing and attempted putsches of the right. This show includes German Cabaret Songs of the 1920s and early 30s, songs that were considered "degenerate" by the rising Nazi Regime in 1933 and therefore banned, due to Jewish creatorship. It features songs that Haan has not sung before as well as newly arranged and newly interpreted songs of former shows in a brand new setting, telling the story of the rise and fall of what was Germany's first democracy: The Republic of Weimar!
It is a theatrical musical voyage, a "tour de force" about the struggle of feminism, the longing for freedom, trans-gender discovery, sexual liberation, and the demolishing of chains of the old traditions.

Introducing new-comer French Cabaret Artist Magali Dahan as special guest.

Featuring Richard Danley as MD, directed by Barry Kleinbort.

A soirée noire with erotic splendor.

Produced by Peter Martin and Joseph Barry.

09/13/2019 | Between Fire&Ice

Beethovenfest, Bonn, Germany

Celebrating the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the Weimar Republic (1919-2019).

A diabolical Weimar Berlin Cabaret depicting Berlin during the 1920s: A time of change, challenge, experiments and when traditions went down the drain. With the First World War lost and the Kaiser in exile, Germany began to experiment with a new form of government: the Weimar Republic was born and with it a nation longing for latitude.  Come and celebrate the Golden Age, the dance on the volcano between the two World Wars, a time of creativity, art, music and culture, the women’s movement, and gay liberation. Haan re-lives this bodacious period probing the ties between feminist struggle and female glamour, taking you on an enchanting musical voyage through history.

Benjamin Schaefer is Music Director.

09/17/2019 | Lecture on Degenerate Music

Opderschmelz, Dudelange, Luxembourg

Degenerate Music was a label applied in the 1930s by the Nazi government in Germany to certain forms of music that it considered to be harmful or decadent. The Nazi government's concern for degenerate music was a part of its larger and more well-known campaign against degenerate art (German: Entartete Kunst). In both cases, the government attempted to isolate, discredit, discourage, or ban the works.

From the Nazi seizure of power onward, these composers found it increasingly difficult, and often impossible, to get work or have their music performed. Many went into exile (e.g., Arnold Schoenberg, Kurt Weill, Paul Hindemith, Berthold Goldschmidt); or retreated into "internal exile" (e.g., Karl Amadeus Hartmann, Boris Blacher); or ended up in the concentration camps (e.g., Viktor Ullmann, or Erwin Schulhoff).

Like degenerate art, examples of degenerate music were displayed in public exhibits in Germany beginning in 1938. One of the first of these was organized in Düsseldorf by Hans Severus Ziegler, at the time superintendent of the Weimar National Theatre, who explained in an opening speech that the decay of music was "due to the influence of Judaism and capitalism".

Ziegler's exhibit was organized into seven sections, devoted to (Anon. 1938, 629):

  1. The influence of Judaism
  2. Schoenberg
  3. Kurt Weill and Ernst Krenek
  4. Minor Bolsheviks (Franz Schreker Alban Berg, Ernst Toch, etc.)
  5. Leo Kestenberg, director of musical education before 1933
  6. Hindemith's operas and oratorios
  7. Igor Stravinsky


In her lecture, Adrienne Haan goes into detail about the origins of this catastrophe, featuring certain artists. There will be a powerpoint presentation with music toward the end of the lecture, a Q&A session as well as a reception.

In cooperation with MemoShoah Luxembourg, Op der Schmelz, the city of Dudelange and the German Embassy in Luxembourg.

This event is under patronage of the German Ambassador in Luxembourg, Heinrich Kreft.

The lecture begins at 7.30 pm and is FREE of charge.
