A personal rendezvous with the composer: Kurt Weill comes to life in rarely seen scenes from movies, silent films from Berlin, Paris and New York, as well as rare photographs. On top of that, you will be able to hear him on an American radio station and performing his own songs. Dr. Jürgen Schebera will be reading extracts from his letters, writings and interviews and the soprano Stefanie Wüst will accompany the historic documents with well-known as well as lesser known songs and chansons from different times.
An event of the Vertretung des Landes Sachsen-Anhalt in cooperation with the Jüdischen Kulturtagen Berlin.
