Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny

Live streaming of Bertolt Brecht’s and Kurt Weill’s opera Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny in a production by John Fulljames, shown in Amsterdam exclusively at EYE. Mahagonny is a caustic satire of a society morally ruined by greed for money and excessive hedonism. Weill’s colourful and inventive score was strongly influenced by jazz and ragtime.
