Rome [ENA] Ute Lemper's career is remarkably varied due to her superb versatility that has led her to cover the roles of actress of theater and cinema, singer and dancer, always winning great success. She has been universally praised for her interpretations of Berlin Cabaret Songs, the works of Kurt Weill and Berthold Brecht and the French Chanson Book. In the world of theater Ute left her mark with her interpretations in

Broadway, in Paris and in London's West End. Her celebrated recordings for DECCA include Ute Lemper Sings Kurt Weill (Vols. I and II), Three Penny Opera, The Seven Deadly Sins, Mahagonny Songspiel, Prospero's Books (Michael Nyman), Songbook (Michael Nyman/Paul Celan), Illusions (Piaf/Dietrich), City of Stranger(Prevert/Sondheim) and Berlin Cabaret Songs (German and English versions). She was named Billboard Magazine's Crossover Artist of the Year for 1993- 1994. In early 2000, Decca/Universal Music released Punishing Kiss, featuring new songs composed for her by Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Philip Glass, and Nick Cave. Her following release on Decca, But One Day, featured new arrangements of Weill, Brel, Piazzolla, Heymann and Eisler songs

as well as the first recordings of her own compositions, for which she wrote both lyrics and music. Ute Lemper made a great show in Rome (at the Teatro Brancaccio on Saturday, May 27 at 9 pm) with “ Songs for Eternity”, songs written in the Ghettos and Concentration Camps between 41 and 44 by the prisoners, a show she’s particularly devoted to . The authors often were killed in gas chambers. They are songs of great beauty, with daring words, often written by poets. Ute Lemper was born in Münster on July 4, 1963 in Germany, completed her studies at the Cologne Academy of Dance and at the Max Reinhardt School of Dramatic Arts in Vienna.
