FOR ALL AGES: Kurt Weill’s Zaubernacht (Magic Night)

The Knickerbocker Chamber Orchestra and choregrapher Jody Oberfelder Projects present Kurt Weill’s Zaubernacht (Magic Night), a dance and chamber music work for all ages.

This is the first time the original orchestrations will be heard in New York City since Zaubernacht's American premiere in 1925. 

According to KCO founder and music director Gary S. Fagin, “When Weill fled Nazi Germany in 1933, he left the original score of Zaubernacht behind. Three years later, the score was brought to America for Zaubernacht’s New York premiere, and in 1954, it was bequeathed to Yale University. But the materials were locked into the wrong safe, which was moved to a basement, where it gathered dust for more than 50 years." In 2006, the safe was opened and the score was discovered.

When: Wed., March 14, 7 pm; Thur., March 15, 7 pm; Sun., March 18, 2 pm
