About the Event

Feel the energy of one of the most successful operas of the twentieth century: The Komische Oper Berlin presents Kurt Weill's 'Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny'.

Barrie Kosky's interpretation of Brecht and Weill's political parable uses the techniques of Brecht's theater and adapts them to our time. Audience and press alike have celebrated the production, which does not shy away from sharp satire.

In German language, with German, English, French, and Turkish subtitles.
