Tiffany Weiss

Ghosts of Weimar Past” is a programme of musical time travel, in which we honor the spirit of cabaret and vaudeville from the birth to the death of Weimar Berlin.  It features an all-female cast of musical characters, including Mary Spencer Knapp (Toot Sweet, “Natasha, Pierre, & The Great Comet of 1812”, “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll”) on accordion, Moriah Trenk (Philadelphia Ballet, Boston Ballet) on piano, and Tiffany Weiss (Lotus Chamber Music Collective, The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, Orchestra of St. Luke’s) on violin. 

Join us as we resurrect the songs of Michael Jary, Mischa Spoliansky, Kurt Weill, and more, channeled through the music of The Orchestra of the Depraved and chanteuse Artemisia LeFay.

From the gritty 20s, tumultuous 30s, and uncertain 40s, cabaret existed— most importantly, as a way to criticize and defy the faults of society. “Ghosts of Weimar Past” is full of Marlene Dietrich standards, snippets from Anita Berber’s “Dances of Depravity”, and the LGBTQ+ anthems and anti-nazi songs that were sung under the very nose of fascism.  

When we study the past, we prevent history from repeating itself. What are the ghosts of Weimar past warning us of?”

Ms. Lefay is classically trained with a fine rich mezzo that she imploys with a purity of sound true to her training... at times; and like the women of her favorite era, the purity of Lefay's mezzo power will suddenly take a sharp left turn breaking away from making beautiful sounds in order to be realistic in a very underground way; exploring the heights and depths of what her very female voice can do.”— Broadway World

“New Yorker Artemisia LeFay has devised a show in homage to all those Weimar artists whose creativity, ethnicity, and sexual preferences offended Nazism. 

Together with her pianist Renee Guerrero, LeFay presents a clever, chatty show of ten songs, half of which are in German.” Adelaide Now

“…Ghosts of Weimar Past was decidedly captivating and enjoyable throughout.”  Theatre Pizzazz
