University Opera switches things up with a production that weaves together songs, arias and ensembles from Kurt Weill’s best loved operas and Broadway shows. From Mahagonny to Street Scene to Lady in the Dark, A KURT WEILL CABARET juxtaposes the classic Weill landscapes of hardship, alienation, and pain with episodes of hope, redemption, and savvy comedy. As the show wends its way through a colorful panoply of comedy and drama, relationships form and dissolve between the 14 performers, mini-narratives come and go. The result is a stimulating, thought-provoking journey through the work of one of the most important music and theatre artists of the 20th century – an enriching and highly entertaining evening. David Ronis, director.
