L'Aubette Live:

Acclaimed vocalist Natalie Williams explores early jazz standards from the the 1920s and 30s, when the rhythms of American music infiltrated clubs and cabarets around the world.

Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening throughout Into the Night, the galleries will come to life with performance in the exhibition’s recreation of Strasbourg’s iconic L’Aubette (1928), focusing on the vitality and diversity of jazz as performed across the globe. The evenings are co-curated with Mark Kavuma, a prominent young trumpet player on the British jazz scene.

Classic cocktails will also be served in the adjoining recreation of Vienna’s jewel-like Cabaret Fledermaus bar.

The performance starts at 7pm and is free with an Into the Night exhibition ticket. 

It finishes at approximately 8pm and the gallery closes at 9pm.

Please note that performances have limited capacity, so we would advise arriving early.
