HINDEMITH: Murderer, the Hope of Women
WEILL: Das Berliner Requiem
WEILL: The Seven Deadly Sins
Widely acclaimed English actor/writer/director Simon McBurney and his equally accomplished brother, composer/writer/scholar Gerard McBurney, collaborate with Salonen to present darkly satirical musical-theater works from the heyday of German Expressionism. The music is inflected with 1920s jazz and popular song, along with an edge of cynicism.
The Seven Deadly Sins
is supported by an Edgerton Foundation grant.
