“Cabaret” —since Paris in the 1880s, a distinct approach to performance has matured and gained worldwide popularity. Whether with satire, comedy or romance, Cabaret is known for its elegance, passion, and humor.

The hallmark of Cabaret is its intimacy. At its best, it evokes the universality of life's experiences.
