From the rooftops over Manhattan… Ute Lemper sings her most famous and loved songs from Weill, Brel, Piaf, Joni Mitchell, Romy Schneider and Kander & Ebb – a repertoire that she has developed through almost 4 decades of musical performances around the world, from Berlin to Paris, from London to New York.

2. Rendezvous With Marlene (Online through May 31, from Carnegie Hall’s Voices of Hope Series)
Rendezvous with Marlene is based on a three-hour phone exchange in 1987 between legendary actress Marlene Dietrich and Ute Lemper. At the time, Dietrich was living as a recluse in her Paris apartment, while Lemper was being celebrated by Parisian audiences for her performance as Sally Bowles in Cabaret. In this one-woman show, Lemper shares Dietrich’s story, channels her emotions, and celebrates songs that highlight various chapters of her career, from the Berlin cabaret years to her later collaborations with Burt Bacharach. In one of the most poignant periods of her life, Dietrich was especially vocal against the Nazis during World War II, renouncing her German citizenship and passionately supporting Jews and other dissidents who—like her—faced discrimination and retribution. Musical selections include “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” “Falling in Love Again,” and “Lili Marleen.”
