Mack the Knife: An Evening of Kurt Weill

Tuesday, October 27 at 7:30pm

Join us for an evening of song that celebrates The Atlanta Opera Company and Studio Players. The collaboration between theatrical innovator Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill is legendary.  We’ll feature songs from their famous opera The Threepenny Opera, plus tuneful selections written by Weill that you may not know. Players Jasmine Habersham, Brian Vu and Megan Marino are all winners of The Kurt Weill Foundation for Music’s prestigious Lotte Lenya Competition. If you love musical theater, opera or all shades in between, you’ll love this socially-distanced and musically-inspiring evening out.
