The L.A. Opera presents Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny by composer Kurt Weill and playwright Bertolt Brecht. Considered by many to be one of the greatest operas of the 20th century, the piece, a lyrical satire, blends traditional opera and music hall songs. Set in the fictional "anything goes" city of Mahogonny, the original performance in 1930 Germany was disrupted by a band of Nazi Brown Shirts.
