One of the most radical, controversial works ever created by playwright Bertolt Brecht and composer Kurt Weill, the opera The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny is a devastating critique of capitalism. This volume includes twenty-nine essays in English and German that address Mahagonny from multiple perspectives: context, text, utopia, music, and the continuing influence of this opera more than three quarters of a century after its creation. The volume also contains original material by Brecht and an essay on Brecht in India.Distributed for the International Brecht SocietyISSN 0734-8665
