The Rise and Fall of the City of Athens

Reading time: 1 min. Kurt Weill

In a poignant if unforeseen comment on the financial crisis in Greece, Kurt Weill’s opera The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny comes to the Megaron in Athens tonight in the acclaimed production from Madrid’s Teatro Real.

Art mirrors reality once again. The Madrid performance was accompanied by a public sector strike, with uncollected rubbish lying in the streets of the capital.
