About Sven Ratzke

Ratzke’s style and talent is unique. Combining high culture with elements of cabaret, the Dutch/German entertainer can be a crooner and a rocker, with a touch of Berlin golden twenties in his blood.

He is famous for his career defining role as Hedwig in the cult rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch in Germany, and is well known for transforming classics like Brecht/Weill or pop legend David Bowie into something you have never experienced before. An award-winning seasoned performer, Ratzke spends 48 weeks of the year touring the world. From sold out shows at Lincoln Center in New York, to the Royal Concertgebouw Amsterdam and the famous Berliner Ensemble in Berlin.
