BBC Proms 2000

on BBC Radio 3

Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London.
Few operas hit harder and few have still so much musical power as Brecht and Weill's 1930 fable of a hedonistic society rushing headlong towards destruction - unable to control the issues of power and greed, wealth and corruption. Sometimes austere and often exhilarating, Mahagonny has lost none of its bite in a new century.

BBC Singers, BBC Philharmonic, conductor HK Gruber, director Stefan Janski
