Pierrot Lunaire and Berlin cabaret songs

An evening of Weimar-style music

Enter the fantastic world of the Berlin cabaret of the 1920s with this evening of Weimar-style music. The performance begins with a selection of songs by composers including Hanns Eisler and Kurt Weill and culminates with Arnold Schoenberg’s satirical melodrama, Pierrot Lunaire. This is an original production of the atonal master’s avant-garde song cycle, directed by John Wregg and featuring soprano Wendy Dixon. Music Director Simon Kenway and six bright young musicians play this fascinating score, which was publicly burnt by Hitler.

Enjoy an exclusive viewing of The mad square: modernity in German art 1910–37 before the show (performance begins at 7.15pm sharp).
