Beyond Borders: A Kurt Weill Gala


On February 28, Rolando Villazón performs in Beyond Borders: A Kurt Weill Gala, opening the 2020 Kurt Weill Festival in Dessau. The festive evening traces Weill’s life journey—from emigration from Germany to success in America—through Weill’s musical works.

The evening includes music from Der Silbersee, Marie Galante, Knickerbocker Holiday, and more. Rolando is joined by soprano Danielle Beckvermit (soprano) and Vladimir Korneev (baritone). Conductor Thomas Neuhoff leads the Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau.
