About the May 9, 2013 Program:
Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins is a ballet originally written for his wife, Lotte Lenya, in collaboration with Bertolt Brecht. The work premiered in Paris in 1933, after Weill fled persecution in his native Germany. It tells the tale of what could be two sisters or a split personality as they set out on a tour of American cities each represented by a different sin. The ballet is a bitter satire on bourgeoisie exploitation. The piece will include Oregon Symphony’s original vocalist, Storm Large.
Update: The reviews are in!
Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Storm Large were presented as part of the third annual Spring For Music festival, celebrating six American orchestras in a week of performances May 6 to 11, 2013. All tickets to all concerts are just $25.
