The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny

Bloomsbury, 2014
A pivotal work in the genesis of Brecht's theory and practice of epic theatre, this is a classic of the twentieth-century avant-garde and represents his first major collaboration with the composer Kurt Weill. It premiered in Leipzig in 1930 where it provoked a major scandal. It chronicles the development and demise of the 'paradise city' of Mahagonny in a series of tableaux capturing the baser aspects of human nature.
