Ballet Chanté by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht


Brecht and Weill’s socially critical masterpiece The Seven Deadly Sins unites song, dance, and theatre with accompaniment by the Royal Danish Orchestra. The piece is performed on the Main Stage of the Opera House, where Danish Dance theatre and the Royal Opera share the stage with artist Nanna Øland Fabricius, aka Oh Land.


Staged by Patrick Kinmonth & Pontus Lidberg, the piece treats the topics of greed, anger, lust, and envy in conjunction withsome of Weill’s most accomplished musical compositions. The Seven Deadly sins is the result of the turbulent and epochal collaboration between Weill and Brecht in the 1920s and 1930s, where the art of theatre flourished in Berlin. In this satirical reinterpretation, Weill’s music meets a new choreography by Pontus Lidberg, along with staging and stage design by Patrick Kinmonth.


The piece is presented alongside the world premiere of Louise Alenius’ The Manual. The Manual is performed in Danish, and The Seven Deadly Sins in German with Danish surtitles.
