Salle Ravel (Levallois) - February 7th - 8 PM
During the show's run in the early 1940s in New York, Kurt Weill was admired by the the entire American musical scene. The dramaturg and theater director Moss Hart and the famous librettist Ira Gershwin opened up the world of Broadway to the composer, and collaborated with him in creating Lady in the Dark, a sophisticated musical synthesis of American Swing and music from the Berlin of the années folles, with a story based on intrigue, glamour and the latest developments in psycho-analysis. The protagonist, Liza Elliott, is the unhappy female editor of a fashion magazine, Allure, who is undergoing psychoanalysis. Dany Kaye was part off the original cast in 1941 and became a star based on his performance of the song « Tschaikowsky ».
For this new production, Opera Fuoco & David Stern will collaborate with the talented director Benjamin Prins.
In his vision, he will sublime Paris’s neurosis and psyche.
