The Last Cabaret

Produced by City Opera Vancouver
in association with Sound the Alarm: Music/Theatre

Presented at the
2020 PuSh
International Performing Arts Festival

This cabaret celebrates the subversive power of art and offers a warning to those who would take freedom for granted.
1934: As Nazism tightens its grip on Germany, a satirical cabaret troupe faces physical danger and a moral crisis. Members have disappeared under suspicious circumstances; the five that remain have to decide whether to bend to intimidation or perform their work uncensored. With death looming in the air, the risks couldn’t be higher—and yet the desperate need for expression is still there...

Vancouver, 2020.

Acis + Galatea, 2017

Named "Vancouver's Best Opera"

 "...this retelling of Handel’s story was refreshing, making perfect sense of music and libretto, doing a fine job of presenting them, and introducing a concept of the opera more dramatically compelling than the original."

Webley aWaits, 2012

"Comedy walked - OK, staggered at times - arm in arm with tragedy... The front seat? That was Kris Ruston driving the energy from behind the grille of an '80s Ford pickup, part of a junk-strewn set that included a kitchen-utensil rhythm section.

Mike Youds, The Daily News

Dragging Piaf, 2016

"On its own, ninety minutes of Frederik Robert’s singing could’ve been interesting and fully entertaining … I was excited to see if the silent film could use the urgency and intensity of Robert’s live voice to spin a powerful narrative… And it did."

Satie de Paris, 2009

"Satie de Paris was poetry on stage!"

Mike Youds, The Daily News
