One of the great Weill interpreters of our time, Austrian-born soprano Ute Gfrerer joins UMD faculty member Tim McReynolds for an evening focused on the remarkable love story of Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya. Through Weill’s music, we explore the earliest days of their relationship, their immigration to America, and beyond.
