A great concert that showcased the amazing range of SMC - From the fun and irreverent Act 1 to the astonishing and emotional Act 2, this was a cultural experience that both entertains and provokes. McCaw Hall was a beautiful setting for the concert and I loved getting the seats at the discounted price!
Quotes & Highlights
Check the Seattle Men’s/Women’s Chorus website for information about preconcert discussions.
This richly varied concert uses music to powerfully highlight the lives of gay men in Germany before and during the Nazi era.
Act I, Life is a Cabaret, brings to life the freewheeling high spirits of the pre-war Weimar period with outrageously entertaining music by Kurt Weill, Kander and Ebb (Cabaret), and songs made popular by German icon Marlene Dietrich.
Act II presents Jake Heggie’s For a Look or a Touch, a poignant look at two gay lovers torn apart by the Holocaust.
Starring special guest baritone Morgan Smith, staged by Intiman Theatre’s Andrew Russell, and featuring the full Men’s Chorus, this thought-provoking, ultimately uplifting musical drama is a soaring tribute to the strength of the human spirit.
