CALENDAR OF EVENTS
CENTER STAGE AND INFRASOUND PRESENTS: LAVENDER NIGHTS
June 18, 7:00 pm-9:00 pm
Lavender Nights is a celebration of queer history and culture through the art of cabaret and art song. This production will be a musical tour of pivotal moments in cabaret’s history, experienced through a queer lens.
Lavender Nights opens with songs from 1920’s Berlin during the height of the Weimar Republic’s queer revolution including selections from Kurt Weil’s “Three Penny Opera,” Mischa Spoliansky’s “Its All a Swindle” and “The Lavender Song,” and more! Transitioning to 1950s Paris, the audience will hear love songs of Le Chat Noir including “Padam Padam” by Edith Piaf, “Je te veux” by Erik Satie, and “On n’oublie rien” by Jacques Brel. An intimate ending with just voices and piano, we reflect on our current socio-political climate with 19th-century English art songs by Charles Ives, Margaret Bonds, and Ethyl Smith.
With a fresh, young cast of talented singers and a vivacious pit band, this 90-minute show will be an extravagant, emotional, and moving piece of music theater. For one night only, you won’t want to miss it!
