Welcome to our fundraising page for It’s in the Air!
A new cabaret musical showcase to be premiered at Hope Mill Theatre
on 22nd and 23rd June.
‘It’s in the Air!
’ is an original English adaptation of the hit German cabaret musical ‘Es Liegt in der Luft' by composer Mischa Spoliansky
and librettist Marcellus Schiffer. First performed in 1928 with celebrated 20s jazz standards and chanteuse Marlene Dietrich in the starring role, the musical encapsulates the alienation within society and mindless extravagance of the Weimar Republic’s inter-war years.
The audience will be immersed in a night of glittering comedic satire and will be transported back to cabaret’s golden days in Weimar Berlin. See for yourself that although almost a century has passed, our world is still grappling with the same issues today.
The project is part-funded by the Spoliansky Trust, Golsoncott Foundation, Royal Northern College of Music and The Marchus Trust. Having never been performed in the UK before, the showcase is the first stage in a larger plan to produce the full scale musical with a commercial production company. This fundraising campaign is an exciting opportunity for music and theatre lovers to support a musical in its beginning stages with worldwide commercial potential.
