"There was a city called Berlin, in a country called Germany, and that was the end of the world, and I danced."

1929, shortly before the end of the year. The search for a subject for his new novel takes the American writer Clifford Bradshaw to Berlin. On the train, he meets the young German Ernst Ludwig, who recommends a visit to the hip Kit Kat Club. On New Year's Eve, he meets the singer Sally Bowles there. They fall in love and move into Cliff's room together at Fräulein Schneider's boarding house, where she is about to get engaged to the Jewish fruit merchant Isaak Schultz. But Berlin is changing. National Socialists in uniform increasingly dominate the cityscape. Worried by the political developments, Cliff wants to return to America with the pregnant Sally. Sally wants to stay: The show must go on. But even at the Kit Kat Club, the clocks are now ticking differently - and the windows of Isaak Schultz's fruit store are shattered. Cabaret tells the story of Berlin's transformation from a vibrant, international metropolis of the Golden Twenties full of parties, glitter, shows and free love to a society brought into line during the rise of National Socialism, which radically changes the city and takes away people's freedom and freedom of movement - in life and in art.

After the Lubitsch classic Sein oder Nichtsein, Hauptmann's Die Ratten and Schiller's Kabale und Liebe, Cabaret is the fourth directorial work by the well-known actress Steffi Kühnert in Schwerin. She is staging this dance on the volcano as an interdisciplinary musical with actors, singers and musicians from the Mecklenburg-Schwerin Staatskapelle Schwerin.
