Kurt Weill comes out of the darkmain
We’re excited by reports of a rare upcoming production of Weill’s last opera, Lady in the Dark. It opens May 17 in Mainz, a farewell show by outgoing director Matthias Fontheim.
It opens with the editor of a fashion magazine on a psychoanalyst’s couch.
What’s not to love?
