The Mahagonny Songspiel + The Seven Deadly Sins

9 December 2021 to 15 January 2022 Old Fitz Theatre, 129 Dowling Street (Crn of Cathedral St), Wollomoolloo, Gadigal Country, NSW, Australia. From $34.69 to $46.94
A tap dance on the edge of the world. A drunken reverie. A live band featuring tuba, banjo, and a piano on its last legs.

Constantine Costi and his team present a Kurt Weill Double Bill of operatic cantata, dance, and theatrical mayhem.

 

The Mahagonny Songspiel (Weill/Hauptmann/Brecht) is a manic celebration of the fall of a fictitious city, Mahagonny, whose gold façade is nothing but a cover for nausea, vice, and despair.


The Seven Deadly Sins (Weill/Brecht) sees two sisters hustling their way across America. They will charm and swindle to make ends meet in any way they can to survive.

 

The Fitz has always been a space where anything is possible, and for the first time it will be home to a debauched operatic spectacle.
