This night Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra plays in Vara Concert Hall.

Conducting soprano Barbara Hannigan finds the common denominators: Stravinsky, Offenbach and Weill worked in Paris, and all three had other homelands. Stravinsky’s 18th century ballet Pulcinella – with costumes designed by Picasso! – was a huge success, as was Offenbach’s ”The Happy Paris” with can-can and all. And it was in Paris that Kurt Weill began his international career as a musical composer, which eventually led to premieres on Broadway. Here, Barbara Hannigan sings some of his finest songs from that time.
Barbara Hannigan is the principal guest conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra.


Intermission 25 min

Weill Lost in the Stars 4 min
