Kurt Weill and Paul Green: The story behind Johnny Johnson

Kurt Weill’s Johnny Johnson

Operetta and The Great War

Join us on a journey back to “The Great War” as we look at Operetta’s unusual role as a vehicle for the propaganda of nations.  With wars raging in the Middle East and new provocations by the former Cold War power Russia, our look back at “The Great War” is more relevant than ever. 3 great shows! The rarely heard World War I satire Johnny Johnson, by Kurt Weill and Paul Green and our moving concert Operetta and The Great War: The forgotten shows of World War I and our season opening Concert/Lecture called Kurt Weill and Paul Green: The story behind Johnny Johnson.
