Long regarded as the “new Marlene”, Ute Lemper is anything but a carbon copy of the great Berlin actress and chansonnière. But in Paris in 1988 at age 25, while basking in the huge success of the musical Cabaret, she enjoyed a “rendezvous” with Marlene: For three hours they chatted on the phone after Marlene Dietrich had sent Ute Lemper a postcard. The conversation revolved around Marlene’s life, her work and her style, her love for Rilke, her complicated relationship with Germany, her grief and her passions. Then in 1992 in Berlin’s Theater des Westens, Ute Lemper first sang the role that had made Marlene a star in 1928, namely Lola in Der blaue Engel. Only six days previously, Marlene Dietrich had died in Paris ...

In her programme, Ute Lemper recalls a telephone conversation with the legendary Marlene Dietrich. She takes the audience back in time, tells Marlene’s story and sings her fabulous songs, from the Berlin cabaret years to her collaboration with the composer and songwriter Burt Bacharach.
