Vintage Cabaret Glamour Comes to Strathmore

What is the vintage-lover to do in these winter doldrums? The Washington Ballet’s “Great Gatsby” has been closed for months and yet there are still months to go before that next Seersucker Social. Satisfy your cravings for long pearls and short bobbed hair when, on March 1st, Max Raabe und das Palast Orchester turns the Music Center at Strathmore into an elegant cabaret.

Max Raabe und das Palast Orchester, performs all around the world, drawing on the style and sounds of the 1920s and 1930s, with the thirteen musicians drawing on early jazz, ragtime, classics of the American Songbook, and “German chansons” from Weimar Republic. Attendees are encouraged to dress the part in cloche hats, drop-waist dresses, and dapper suits.

Tickets are available online for $28 to $58.
