This Week (1/28-2/3 )

1. Cabaret by Hoof 'N' Horn
Dates: Thurs, Jan 31st: 8PM
Fri, Feb 1st: 8PM
Sat, Feb 2nd: 2PM
Sat, Feb 2nd: 8PM
Sun, Feb 3rd: 2PM
Location: Sheafer Lab Theater
Contact: Duke University Box Office: tickets@duke.edu | 919.684.4444
Cost: DUKE STUDENTS: $8 | Other: $10
Hoof 'n' Horn, the south's oldest student-run musical theatre group, is proud to present this production of Cabaret. Cabaret takes place during the early 1930s in Berlin, Germany. At this time, cabarets were filled to the brim with prostitutes, Jews, homosexuals, and others considered social outcasts by the Third Reich. The musical centers on a seedy cabaret where Sally Bowles, the headliner, and the eccentric Master of Ceremonies (Emcee) perform. Sally falls in and out of love with an American, named Cliff, who struggles to understand why anyone would want to stay in Germany under the current conditions. Sally and Cliff stay at the apartment complex run by Fräuline Schneider. Fräuline Schneider falls for the pineapple salesmen, Herr Schultz, but she breaks off her engagement to the man because he is Jewish. Everything that happens within the cabaret is satirical commentary on how the Nazi regime negatively affected life in Germany. Cabaret is a dark, raunchy, hilarious, tear-jerker of a musical. There is nothing apologetic about this phenomenal show. Cabaret will be an experience you will never forget, and don't want to miss your opportunity to see it! **Please arrive early. Late seating restrictions may be in effect.**

2. Amjad Ali Khan, sarod
When: Fri, Feb 1st: 8PM
Location: Page Auditorium
Contact: Duke University Box Office: tickets@duke.edu | 919.684.4444
Cost: DUKE STUDENTS: $10 | Other: $20, $34, $42
Born into a family with ancestral claims to the invention of the instrument, Amjad Ali Khan is the master of the sarod, a deep-voiced cousin to the sitar with a bottomless sound. “Using nails rather than fingertips,” says The Washington Post, “is just one of the complications of Khan’s approach to the notoriously challenging Indo-Persian instrument.” Yet he effortlessly coaxes out beautiful melodies, which have enchanted international audiences since the 1960s.
Now North India’s most popular musician brings his sons — rising sarodists Amaan Ali Khan and Ayaan Ali Khan —for an evening of magnificent ragas, Indian folk tunes, and gracious improvisation, proving yet again that “great Indian music can be as exciting as classic blues and rock” (The Guardian).
