Work Introduction

As part of the Berlin Festival of September 1928, the gas and electricity companies of the city staged a huge festival of light under the title “Berlin in Light”. This advertisement for modern technology, and for modernity itself, was designed to demonstrate Berlin’s economic and cultural vitality, only ten years after the defeat and humiliations of 1918. Kurt Weill wrote Berlin im Licht for voice and jazz instruments for the occasion.
