Looking for a musical evening with a little class but no stuffy business? Maybe you like your orchestras with a side of Britney Spears? Sounds like Max Raabe's beautifully nostalgiac vocal stylings, backed by the incredibly precise Palast Orchestra, is just the ticket.
And what's this about tickets? We've got two of them that we're looking to give away to some fine folks with excellent taste, such as yourself. All you've got to do is comment on our post, and you're entered for a chance at one enchanted evening.
Heavily influenced by the sound of German dance and film circa the 1920s and '30s, the orchestral frontman wonderfully captures that sexy, tin-can, wah-wah jazz feeling. It's like time-traveling - and then he goes and covers pop princess Britney Spears on "Oops, I Did it Again," and things get really wild.
But even without the modern pop injection, we think Raabe and his Palast Orchestra make some extremely charming musical guides. Raabe also brings some jokes to the mic, because even if you're sitting in a beautiful theater such as the Arsht Center, there's no reason to be too serious.
Experience something timeless with contemporary flair Sunday and do it for free by following these easy steps. See you there.
