Vígszínház premiered the world-famous musical Cabaret, the very popular work of Joe Masteroff, John Kander and Fred Ebb for the first time in its 125-year history. The performance leads us to the smoky, sweaty, but enchanted Berliner night, the empire of rapture, manifest desire and endless passion. The not at least idyllic love is shadowed by the history itself, but the Berliners are still going to nightclubs and bars and having uncontrolled parties, while the terror and inhumanity become unnoticed a part of their everyday life. The spectacular performance full of well-known songs is staged by Attila Béres, Sally Bowles is portrayed by Csenge Szilágyi and Dobó Enikő. The main roles are played by: Zoltán Seress, András Kern, Éva Igó, Bence Brasch and Szabolcs Horváth.
The musical first premiered 55 years ago on Broadway, based on the script ‘I am a camera’ by John Van Druten and some short stories by Christopher Isherwood. The film based on this play, directed by Bob Fosse in 1972 starring Liza Minelli won 8 Oscars and conquered the world.
The stage adaptation for Vígszínház was made by Róbert Vörös dramaturg together with Attila Béres, the monumental set was designed by Balázs Cziegler, the costumes by Ildikó Tihanyi.
The Cabaret is an eternal story with Sally Bowles, the singer of Blue Angel in the centre, looking for her ways both inside and outside. Not only she wants to become an actress but also a loving, happy person at all costs, who refuses to give up on her dreams, even when there are already soldiers on the streets of Berlin.
