Music of Yiddish theaters and cabarets

2nd part

Many cultural and musical events went on in Paris as soon as the beginning of the 19th century. There were Yiddish theaters, like the Théâtre de la République, also called Théâtre Lancry, Théâtre de l’Entrepôt, but also cabarets like La Riviera with Bernard Potock and Dave Cash, the Dancing Cabaret with Sigmunt Berland or the Yiddish Cabaret with Dave Cash...

During many years, cafés, theaters and cabarets, that often had a short existence, counted on actors, singers and musicians to attract an audience that was spoke Yiddish.

The singers performed folkloric songs and parodies. They often wandered between the tables and encouraged the audience to laugh, sing and dance, propagating the spirit of Yiddish song.
