The Weimar Republic: Germany 1918-1933
Salonen Conducts The Seven Deadly Sins

Vibrant musical theater from the Weimar Republic.

About this Performance

Widely acclaimed English actor/writer/director Simon McBurney and his equally accomplished brother, composer/writer/scholar Gerard McBurney, collaborate with Salonen to present darkly satirical musical-theater works from the heyday of German Expressionism. The music is inflected with 1920s jazz and popular song, along with an edge of cynicism.

The Seven Deadly Sins is supported by an Edgerton Foundation grant.
