The escape to a fascinating city of pleasure leads to disillusionment in Mahagonny: Ein Songspiel, which launched Weill’s rich collaboration with Bertolt Brecht. In Menotti’s tragic drama The Medium, an inexplicable, perhaps truly supernatural event becomes the catalyst for a slide into paranoia and madness.
