SONGS OF RESISTANCE AND REBELLION welcomes the return of acclaimed vocalist Rebecca Comerford and pianist Anna Dagmar to the Metropolitan Museum's Neue Galerie cabaret series with a one woman show of power and potency. The two veteran performers traverse the worlds of opera, jazz and folk, celebrating the art of the protest song and the composers who give a voice to the voiceless. Highlights include works by Kurt Weill, Hanns Eisler, Anaïs Mitchell, Woody Guthrie, Nina Simone and Comerford herself. From concert halls to beer halls, from the French Revolution to the Weimar Republic, Songs of Resistance and Rebellion is what Broadway World describes as "an unforgettable night."
