Kurt Weill - revisited

Dominique Horwitz & die "Me and the Devil"-Band
The Beggar’s Opera 2071

Music Show

Dominique Horwitz and his band of seven musicians project John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera, on which the globally successful Threepenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill was based, into the future.

The audience is transported to the year 2071: China has long since edged the former world powers to the margins of meaningless following the collapse of the European Union. But how do people behave? Horwitz presents us with a picture of the mores in this new world with well-known Kurt Weill songs, hits from David Bowie or Stevie Wonder and melodies from Irving Berlin or Modest Mussorgski. 

A rocky, soulful, funky, jazzy, freshly laconic evening of theatre with seductive salon music: an evening full of the joy of life and with the usual twinkle in Horwitz’ eye.

Michael Leuschner - trumpet  
Gabriel Coburger - Saxophone, Flute
