An Affair To Remember - The Unusual Love Story of Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya

About the Event
Did you know that Kurt Weill married Lotte Lenya twice? Or that Lenya always wore two sets of false eyelashes on stage? Or that her name was actually Charlotte Karoline Wilhemine Blamauer before she changed it to Lotte Lenya? Or that all of Weill’s works got forbidden when Hitler came to power? This program is a homage to one of my favorite composers of all times –Kurt Weill,and to his wife, fellow Austrian actress and singer Lotte Lenya. With the help of his gorgeous music, original quotes and photographs I am taking you into their life stories that were, of course, very much shaped by the times they lived in.
