1 Cabaret Il musical del 1966

2 Il musical del 1966 mostra un ripensamento quasi completo del materiale berlinese rispetto al play del 1951 e al film del 1955: Joe Masterhoff si rifà direttamente ai romanzi di Isherwood e, insieme al regista Harold Prince, decide che il personaggio di Sally Bowles NON deve essere al centro della trama, MA solo uno dei personaggi che interagiscono sul palcoscenico storico degli eventi tedeschi di inizio anni 30; Il personaggio di Sally, dunque, viene ridimensionato, sia nellesuberanza che nella centralità; Importanza fondamentale riveste invece lo scenario storico e politico, soprattutto la scalata al potere da parte di Hitler e la persecuzione razziale e culturale nei confronti degli ebrei. Due elementi in particolare costituiscono linnovazione vera e propria del musical: La creazione del personaggio dellEMCEE; La composizione di una serie di numeri musicali cantati da alcuni dei personaggi.

Allen, rende necessaria leliminazione di alcune canzoni originali e la composizione di altre, nuove e in linea con la nuova storia: Sparisce la trama dellamore maturo tra Herr Schultz e Frl. Schneider Ritorna la trama dellamore giovane tra Fritz Wendel e Natalia Landauer (già presente nel play del 1951) Diventa sempre più importante il tema della ricchezza come potere

6 Tomorrow Belongs to Me [The Emcee plays a recording on a phonograph.] [BOY SOPRANO] The sun on the meadow is summery warm. The stag in the forest runs free. But gather together to greet the storm. Tomorrow belongs to me. The branch of the linden is leafy and green, The Rhine gives its gold to the sea. But somewhere a glory awaits unseen. Tomorrow belongs to me. The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes The blossom embraces the bee. But soon, says a whisper; "Arise, arise, Tomorrow belongs..." [EMCEE (spoken)] To me!

7 Tomorrow Belongs to Me (Reprise) [FRAULEIN KOST (spoken)] Herr Ludwig! You are not leaving so early? [ERNST] I do not find this party amusing. [FRAULEIN KOST] Ah- but it is just beginning. Come, we will make it amusing- you and I- Ja? Herr Ludwig- this is for you: The sun on the meadow is summery warm. The stag in the forest runs free. But gather together to greet the storm. Tomorrow belongs to me. The branch of the linden is leafy and Green, The Rhine gives its gold to the sea. But somewhere a glory awaits unseen. Tomorrow belongs to me. Herr Ludwig! Sing with me! [FRAULEIN KOST AND ERNST] The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes The blossom embraces the bee. But soon, says a whisper; "Arise, arise, Tomorrow belongs to me" [FRAULEIN KOST] Everybody! [ALL (except FRAULEIN SCHNEIDER, SCHULTZ, CLIFF and SALLY, who stand watching)] Oh Fatherland, Fatherland, Show us the sign Your children have waited to see. The morning will come When the world is mine. Tomorrow belongs to me!

8 Cabaret What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret, old chum, Come to the Cabaret. Put down the knitting, The book and the broom. Time for a holiday. Life is Cabaret, old chum, Come to the Cabaret. Come taste the wine, Come hear the band. Come blow your horn, Start celebrating; Right this way, Your table's waiting No use permitting soem prophet of doom To wipe every smile away. Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret, old chum, Come to the Cabaret! I used to have a girlfriend known as Elsie With whom I shared Four sordid rooms in Chelsea She wasn't what you'd call A blushing flower... As a matter of fact She rented by the hour. The day she died the neighbors came to snicker: "Well, thats what comes from to much pills and liquor." But when I saw her laid out like a Queen She was the happiest...corpse... I'd ever seen. I think of Elsie to this very day. I'd remember how'd she turn to me and say: "What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play. Life is a Cabaret, old chum, Come to the Cabaret." And as for me, I made up my mind back in Chelsea, When I go, I'm going like Elsie. Start by admitting From cradle to tomb Isn't that long a stay. Life is a Cabaret, old chum, Only a Cabaret, old chum, And I love a Cabaret!
