The Weimar era comes to dangerous leather-clad life at the Pines this summer as we take you to the exciting and mysterious, cabaret world of Berlin in 1925 where you will be treated to an edgy new adaption of Kurt Weill’s most beloved songs followed by a surprise performance of Kurt Weill and Georg Kaiser’s expressionist operatic thriller, The Protagonist. Be one of the first people in America to see this brilliant opera in the Pines Pavilion transformed into a wild, dream world by Marfa based installation artist, Charles Mary Kubricht, and project runway finalist and former Mark Morris dancer, choreographer/costume designer, Bradon McDonald, in a new adaptation by director Edwin Cahill  accompanied in a concert piano version by music director, Bradley Moore. The evening will culminate in a Kurt Weill inspired Haus music dance party!
