This concert was filmed with six cameras at the Hamer Hall in Melbourne. Acclaimed Barry Humphries curates, presents and performs with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, the degenerate music of Berlin’s Weimar Republic (1920s-1930s), including jazz, cabaret, tango and Broadway-musical style pieces. The hedonistic partying and social revolution of this era is re-awakened in this full-throttle concert featuring transgressive cabaret sensation Meow Meow

Also performed in London, Edinburgh and Massachusetts during 2016…
