Max Raabe Palast Orchester
For Carnegie Hall, Max Raabe will undoubtedly be decked in his finest formal wear and sweetest pomade. His Palast Orchester brilliantly channels the pomp and decadence of Gatsby-era Germany, a period when the nation's intelligentsia led the world in the arts and sciences. But it's Raabe himself who lifts the cabaret show from the trappings of nostalgiathis Berliner has his dapper face down cold, and it's nothing short of sinisterimagine Bing Crosby as a Nazi singing about upskirts and the bogeyman.
