This event will last approximately 1 hour.

The Maryland Opera Studio's production of Kurt Weill's Zaubernacht and Mahagonny Songspiel explores the perils of over-indulgence and addiction. Join us for a lively discussion as we examine our dependence on technology and the ways in which media over-saturates our daily lives. How does this affect the way we experience life, build relationships, process grief, and ultimately, avoid the reality of our emotions? Weill scholar David Lefkowich, who is directing the opera, will converse with Prof. Susan Moeller who conducts studies of global media coverage of international news, among numerous other topics, in her role as the director of the UMD International Center for Media and the Public Agenda.

This event is part of the Kurt Weill Festival funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York NY.
