Kurt Weill: The Seven Deadly Sins

Ensemble Modern; HK Gruber, conductor; Wallis Giunta, mezzo-soprano; amarcord, vocal ensemble

In a rare U.S. performance, their first ever in Texas, Germany’s famed Ensemble Modern performs the American premiere of a new arrangement of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht’s popular musical theater work, The Seven Deadly Sins, with acclaimed mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta singing the lead role of Anna. The sound world conjures up Berlin cabaret, but Seven Deadly Sins begins and ends in Louisiana, evoking the exile of its creators. Music from the theater worlds of Berlin and Vienna round out this remarkable program.
