Der Jasager

Der Jasager

Der Jasager, after a Japanese nô-theater play, is a striking example of this. Kurt Weill and copywriter Bertolt Brecht focused on young performers and listeners, but also wanted to redraw the lines of the opera, including "simplicity and naturalness" in the vocals. Soloists and the entire Kinderkoor from Opera Ballet Vlaanderen present this little-played "school opera" in a concert version and in dialogue with "hits" by Kurt Weill and the catchy Folk Songs by Luciano Berio.
