Mahagonny-Songspiel, also known as The Little Mahagonny, is a "small-scale 'scenic cantata'" written by the composer Kurt Weill and the dramatist Bertolt Brecht in 1927.

Описание: The legacy of Bertolt Brecht is much contested, whether by those who wish to forget or to vilify his politics, but his stature as the outstanding political playwright and poet of the twentieth century is unforgettably established in this major critical work.

Bertolt Brecht was born on February 10, 1898 in Augsburg, Bavaria, and died on August 14, 1956. Brecht formed a writing collective which became prolific and very influential. He was a German playwright, theatre director and Marxist. The modest house where he was born is today preserved as a Brecht Museum. He wrote many lyrics for musicals and collaborated with Kurt Weill to create Die Dregroschenoper - the biggest hit in 1920s Berlin. Brecht experimented with his own theater and company - the Berliner Ensemble - which put on his plays under his direction and which continued after his death.

The Rise and Fall of Mahagonny – This libretto does not reach the same heights as Brecht’s Galileo or Caucasian Chalk . The Seven Deadly Sins of the Petty Bourgeoisie – This is a ballet libretto (if there is such a term). As such, it’s hard to make much of it the little text is there.

The Rise and Fall of Mahagonny – This libretto does not reach the same heights as Brecht’s Galileo or Caucasian Chalk Circle, but it is a libretto and not a play. Alabama Song, covered by such luminaries as David Bowie and Jim Morrison, is dark, quirky drinking song featured in the opera. It basically tells the story of how we sell ourselves to achieve the bourgeoisie dream.

The two works collected in this volume sprang from the same fruitful collaboration that gave rise to Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera. Both are set in America, but an America of myth. In The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, Brecht's parable of greed and indifference, Mahagonny is a boom-town fusing Miami with Sodom and Gomorrah.

The two works collected in this volume sprang from the same fruitful collaboration that gave rise to Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's Threepenny Opera. Both are set in America, but an America of myth. In The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, Brecht's parable of greed and indifference, Mahagonny is a boom-town fusing Miami with Sodom and Gomorrah. Founded on the principle that it is easier to prospect gold from people's pockets than from the earth, it is a city threatened with catastrophe but also obsessed with pleasure and the problem of how to pay for it. The Seven Deadly Sins of the Petty Bourgeoisie, Brecht's supremely ironic ballet libretto, is the story of two sisters who in seven years traverse seven cities. In each, one sister is tempted by one of the seven deadly sins. First performed in Paris and London in 1933, with music by Weill and choreography by George Balanchine, it premiered in the United States in 1958 in a production by Balanchine.Of the translations by W. H. Auden and Chester Kallman that are reprinted here, Hannah Arendt wrote in 1960 that she knew of "no other adequate rendering of Brecht into English." Arcade's definitive edition also contains an introduction by John Willett and Ralph Manheim, the editors of Brecht's complete dramatic work in English, together with extensive notes and variants.
