Finally at the Kurt Weill Festival! Ulrich Tukur is an actor and singer, a composer of songs and a writer, a collector of gramophone records and a Bohemian. In Germany he has garnered all the prizes available to him.

Beginning his career as a busker of songs by Kurt Tucholsky, performance quickly overshadowed his studies of German language and literature. As an actor he has played such figures as the theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer and the Stasi officer Anton Grubitz in the film "The Lives of Others", which received an Oscar. Yet his greatest passion is for the music of the Weimar Republic. With Die Rhythmus Boys he revives the spirit of 1920s and 1930s chanson, while also composing wonderful songs in the style of the Roaring Twenties. Tukur is particularly fascinated by the dark and contradictory elements in these songs and roles of this era. So it comes as little surprise to learn that he performed the part of Mack the Knife in a production of The Threepenny Opera at Hamburg's St. Pauli Theater in 2004.

The audience can look forward to a brilliant selection of French chansons, Weill evergreens and own compositions.
