Conversations | Weill

In this interview, Christopher Franklin, conductor of ‘Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny’ dives into the complexity of the opera. Franklin highlights the variety of composing styles that Weill assembled and transposed for instruments not usually seen in opera orchestras - appearing both on stage and in the pit. The scores require that all the singers and musicians embrace these changing genres throughout the performance.
