Max Raabe In Israel

, , 2012

Max Raabe’s music is homage to 1920s and 1930s Weimar Germany and pre-war European music, primarily written and originally performed by such talents as the Comedian Harmonists, Marlene Dietrich, Friedrich Hollaender and Irving Berlin.

When the wildly popular Berlin-based singer Max Raabe and his Palast Orchester brought their show Tonight or Never to Israel in 2010, the reception was dramatic. This film captures Raabe and his band’s thoughtful reactions to their emotionally and politically charged adventure, as well as the personal stories of concertgoers of different generations. Max Raabe in Israel is most remarkable as a celebration of the healing power of music.
