Ute Lemper at Byblos International Festival 2012

Ute Lemper, and as expected, mesmerized her Lebanese audience with an amazing performance at Byblos International Festival 2012. Ute‘s extraordinarily supple and expressive voice is not her only creative outlet. In musicals she has, of course, also danced, and Maurice Béjart created a ballet for her, “La Mort Subite”, which premiered in Paris in 1990. Her paintings have been shown at the German Consulate in New York, the Goethe Institute in Washington and in Paris, at the Théâtre de la Ville.

She is universally praised for her interpretations of cabaret songs, the German diva’s latest show – Ultimo Tango – pays homage to Astor Piazzolla. In this unique collaboration with virtuoso musicians from Buenos Aires, this multi -talented singer embraces the passion of Argentinian culture and makes this vibrant repertoire her own.
