Ute Lemper: Rendezvous with Marlene

Ute Lemper

Rendezvous with Marlene

14 – 19 May

This show is based on a 3 hour phone call and exchange between Marlene and Ute in 1988 in Paris, 30 years ago.

After receiving the French Moliére Award for her performance in Cabaret in Paris, Ute had sent a postcard to Marlene, who had lived at 12 Avenue de Montaigne since 1979, essentially apologizing for all the media attention comparing her to Marlene Dietrich. Ute was just at the beginning of her career in theatre and music, whereas Marlene looked back on a long, fulfilled life of movies, music, incredible collaborations, love stories and stardom.

Ute considers it her secret gift to hear Marlene talk about her life, her work and style, her love for the poet Rilke, her complicated relationship with Germany, her sorrow and her fascinations.

For one week only, Olivier Award-winning Ute Lemper will bring her one-woman show Rendezvous with Marlene, celebrating the life of Marlene Dietrich, to Arcola Theatre.

“Rendezvous with Marlene means a lot to me – it is my personal homage to that great lady. There are many portraits of Marlene out there, but this one is coming from my heart. Audiences are in for an incredible story; history, fate, courage, style, politics, glamour and sex, talent and a huge career.” Ute Lemper
