Cabaret Politico is an evening of stirring new chamber music and song set amid a politically-charged vaudevillian review that blurs boundaries life between theatre. The program builds upon a lilting protest song, "Farewell to Stromness", written 30 years ago, by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies in his Yellow Cake Review. This song is historical for galvanizing a small seaport community in Orkney, Scotland to successfully thwart uranium mining in their city.
Mezzo-soprano, Lori Rivera hosts the evening, singing songs from the Yellow Cake Review, along with didactic ditties by Frederic Rzewski and Tim Bell. Former SantaCruz Mayor, Ryan Coonerty, dancer, Arianna Lulu and actors Martin Kachuck and Tom Graves help bring the events of Orkney Island onto local terms.
