Merlyn Quaife: Gallery Cabaret
With Andrea Katz on piano, renowned soprano Merlyn Quaife will summon up all the decadence, satire and tragedy of the Weimar Republic and its cabaret tradition in a new departure for Resonate. While the Picasso exhibition takes over the 19th-century Australian galleries, Resonate will move into the entrance court where audiences will be seated cabaret-style and served with wine and light refreshments, while Merlyn and Andrea bring you a program of songs that includes the classics, Lili Marlene, Mack the Knife, Surabaya Johnny and Willkommen from the musical Cabaret.
