Ute Lemper, (born July 4, 1963, Münster, West Germany [now in Germany]), German singer, composer, and actress considered to be the foremost modern interpreter of the music of 1920s Germany.
Lemper’s mother was an opera singer, and she started her daughter on piano, voice, and ballet lessons at an early age. Lemper took children’s parts in operettas and plays, sang in jazz and piano bars as a teenager, and later studied acting and music in Cologne and Vienna. Although she made her stage debut in Stuttgart, performing in plays by Anton Chekhov and Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Lemper made her musical theatre breakthrough in 1983, when she appeared in a Viennese production of Cats. She later took the title role in Peter Pan and the role of Sally Bowles in Cabaret. Her first recording (1988), of the music of Kurt Weill, rose to number one on Billboard magazine’s crossover chart. Lemper later released a second and then a third recording of the music of Weill and appeared on recordings of The Threepenny Opera (1988) and Mahagonny-Songspiel (1989), among Weill’s best-known collaborations with playwright Bertolt Brecht. Lemper’s other recordings included Illusions (1992), an homage to Marlene Dietrich and Edith Piaf that was another best seller.
