THE CRAZY 20s IN ARRIAGA
Arriaga Theatre’s new production.
Los siete pecados capitales [The seven deadly sins] (original title Die sieben Todsünden).
1933, Paris, Weill and Brecht both fleeing Nazi Germany, and despite the artistic tensions sparked between these two great figures in previous projects, they decided to undertake this last satirical cabaret together: “Los siete pecados capitales” [The seven deadly sins]. Even in this final collaboration they did not want to discard the purpose that had unified them in their early joint operas: namely, to change society through a corrosive cynicism that denounced double standards.
This “sung ballet”, in which each movement corresponds to a cardinal sin, once again combines popular European music with airs of swing, intertwining waltzes and marches with rhythms of foxtrot or ragtime. The version we offer in this new production of Arriaga Theatre will be carefully condensed to 15 instrumentalists, possibly bringing us closer to those jazz bands that accompanied the more sordid cabarets of the 1930s.
