Showcasing the chorus: Opera North's Berlin to Broadway with Kurt Weill

From Berlin to Broadway
For the last few years, as part of its Summer season, Opera North has presented a show which showcases the talents of the company's chorus. This year, in collaboration with the West Yorkshire Playhouse, they are presenting Berlin to Broadway with Kurt Weill at the City Varieties, Leeds from 15 to 21 June 2018. 

An ensemble of singers from the chorus of Opera North will be performing a range of Kurt Weill's songs stretching from his Weimar Republic collaborations with Bertolt Brecht, through his Broadway shows to his Broadway opera Street Scene and his final work, Lost in the Stars based on Alan Paton's book Cry the beloved country.
