Theo Bleckmann

Berlin: Songs of Love and War, Peace and Exile

March 11, 2023
Harold Prince Theatre/Livestream Event
PLA Presents

“A vocalist of inventive instinct and assiduous musicality,” (The New York Times) German-born American Theo Bleckmann makes his Penn Live Arts debut with a program of Weimar-era music from worn-torn Berlin, a city in its heyday yet on the precipice of disaster. Joined by pianist Dan Tepfer and the Daedalus Quartet, Penn's quartet-in-residence, this “gifted singer (and twister) of songs” (DownBeat) approaches classic, dark cabaret songs with a tender vulnerability, magnifying their personal and political relevance in today’s world.

The post-show artist Q&A will be hosted by Nate Chinen, the Director of Editorial Content at WRTI.
