The Maryland Opera Studio juxtaposes two of Weill’s earliest works for the stage — Zaubernacht (1922) and Mahagonny Songspiel(1927). An enchanting work about two small children whose toys come to life, Zaubernacht (1922) also features a dance portion that will be performed by TDPS students. Mahagonny Songspiel (1927) is a scenic cantata set in a fictitious American town and marks the beginning of Weill’s collaboration with Bertolt Brecht.
