ROH - Rise And Fall Of The City Of Mahagonny 2015 (encore)

As live.

About this Film

A major work from the remarkable partnership of playwright and poet Bertolt Brecht and
composer Kurt Weill, Mahagonny was first performed in Leipzig in 1930. Its first ever Royal
Opera staging, by Associate Director of Opera John Fulljames, is sung in English,and
conducted by Mark Wigglesworth - recently announced as the successor to Edward
Gardner as Music Director of English National Opera. Mahagonny is a satire on money,
morality and pleasure-seeking among the dubious citizens of a fictional city. The richly
varied, jazz-infused score, influenced by ragtime music, includes such irresistible melodies
as the 'Alabama Song' and many dramatic ensembles. The superb cast includes Kurt Streit
as the wild lumberjack Jimmy, Christine Rice as his sweetheart Jenny, Anne Sofie von
Otter in a welcome return to The Royal Opera as the cunning Leokadja Begbick, and Peter
Hoare and Willard W. White as her helpers and fellow-fugitives Fatty and Moses.
