About Gisela May
Born May 31, 1924 in Wetzlar, Germany, Gisela May is a German national treasure- a singing actress (or "diseuse") in the tradition established by Lotte Lenya and Marlene Dietrich and later continued by Ute Lemper. Born to artistic parents, May's career got off to a slow start, working obscure parts in East German films and taking acting lessons in Leipzig. Her singing talents were discovered by composer Hanns Eisler, and in 1962 she joined the Berliner Ensemble, the theatrical group founded by Bertolt Brecht.
