Fury and Elysium: transgression, revolution, and decadence in Berlin. A brand-new musical that explores a world of political revolution, artistic and sexual freedom.

Fury and Elysium pays homage to six highly influential Weimar Republic icons who put their idiosyncratic stamp on Berlin during a period of radical change, rebellious spirit and boldness between the two world wars. With a particular focus on placing centre stage the fascinating lives of three Jewish women.

Fury and Elysium depicts Berlin’s queer culture, celebrating the drag kings and romance to be found below ground in the infamous cabaret clubs. Featuring a live band, Fury and Elysium immerses audiences in Weimar history and culture, both artistic and political.

Join our ensemble for an evening of authentic Weimar decadence, pulchritude, pomp and splendour. These iconic characters contributed significantly to the pulsating flair of the metropolis while the Nazi storm on the horizon began to blaze.
