SANTA FE, N.M. — Adrienne Haan, one of Europe’s and America’s most popular concert and cabaret stars, will perform “Between Fire & Ice,” a cabaret depicting Berlin during the 1920s, in two shows tonight.
The performance is in connection with the Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival. The program celebrates the Golden Age, the dance on the volcano between the two world wars, a time of creativity, art, music and culture, the women’s movement, and gay liberation. Haan relives this bodacious period probing the ties between feminist struggles and female glamour, taking you on an enchanting musical voyage through history.
She is accompanied on piano by Richard Danley, her long-time musical director.
Hailed as “an all-round entertainer of the highest caliber,” award-winning Haan’s diverse repertoire ranges from chanson to jazz, blues, klezmer and Broadway, as well as her special passion for the music of the 1920s and ’30s. Recent and upcoming engagements include Haan’s debut with the Jerusalem Symphony and The Israel Netanya Orchestra, as well as appearances with the WDR Rundfunkorchester and Vince Giordano & The Nighthawks among others.
She will make her Carnegie Hall debut in October in her production of “Tehorah,” which was written in celebration of the 50th anniversary of German-Israeli diplomatic relations in New York.
Previous New York engagements include a concert for the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Foundation and the Ellington Center for the Arts in a special Duke Ellington 115th birthday celebration.
Her latest CD, “Berlin, mon amour,” hailed as “engaging and unique,” is a tribute to 1920s and ’30s Germany. Earlier recordings include “I Could Have Danced All Night” and “Born to Entertain.”
Haan serves on the board of The Duke Ellington Center for the Arts in New York City, and as a cultural ambassador with performances at the Luxembourg and German embassies in Washington, D.C., and the German Consulate of New York.
