Mahagonny is a mythical American city where people live for greed, lust and violence. End of story.

Written in 1927, Mahagonny-Songspiel set the style for other melodic and savagely critical pieces of music theatre created in Weimar Germany. Elements of this small-scale scenic cantata influenced modern musicians including The Doors who recorded one of the production’s numbers in 1967, immortalizing its haunting first line: “Oh show me the way to the next whiskey bar…..”
