The Maryland Opera Studio juxtaposes two of Weill’s earliest works for the stage — Zaubernacht (1922) and Mahagonny Songspiel(1927). An enchanting work about two small children whose toys come to life, Zaubernacht (1922) also features a dance portion that will be performed by TDPS students. Mahagonny Songspiel (1927) is a scenic cantata set in a fictitious American town and marks the beginning of Weill's collaboration with Bertolt Brecht.

Funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York NY.

This event is part of the Year of Immigration, which aims to transform dialogue into impact on urgent issues related to immigration, global migration and refugees, and to foster open conversation and greater connection with the University of Maryland’s large and diverse international community.
