Offenbach, Germany - SOLD OUT

Alte Schlosserei, Offenbach

On this evening, you will meet three well-known performers of the work of Leonard Cohen. The American singer Perla Batalla, accompanied by her three excellent musicians (Lluis Cartes, Piano, Marc Prat, bass, Manu Corbalán Carillo, guitar), presents songs by Leonard Cohen in a stubborn interpretation. The exceptional actor Hanns Zischler reads poetry , Psalms and Prose by Cohen. Prof. Dr. Christof Graf, Cohen's German biographer, tells about his encounter and friendship with the Canadian-Jewish poet and songwriter. The Offenbach appearance of Perla Batalla, who was on tour around the world with Leonard Cohen as a singer in 1988 and 1993, is the first in Germany after 25 years and the only one in Germany this year.
