Brecht se encuentra con Weill: La boda de los pequeños burgueses/Mahagonny – Ein Songspiel is a new, vibrant  production by the Arriaga Theatre, introducing two early works by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, written in Berlin in the roaring twenties: La boda de los pequeños burgueses (A Respectable Wedding), a crazy comedy ending in chaos, and Mahagonny – Ein Songspiel (The Little Mahagonny), a scenic cantata belonging to a brand-new genre, using jazz and the music of the 1920s to denounce a consumer society that is falling apart.

This Arriaga Theatre production, directed by Andrea Moses – a renowned, award-winning musical theatre director from Germany –, is brief and concise, fast-paced and compelling, fun and absurd, surrealistic and sentimental. It makes fun of our attempts to be happy in a world where we destroy one another, where we need urgent solutions. On stage, law, order and social mores are subverted and replaced by anarchy and chaos, by a sceptical look at the old values and big, cruel businesses of the bourgeoisie. But the unsettling question remains: Can a new and better world emerge from this theatrical collapse?
