Max Brand's opera from 1929 had almost 150 performances in its first year, but the composer fled Germany in 1933 and his music was forgotten. The opera is about sex, murder, exploitation and capitalism, set in a blue-collar area of a modern industrial city. The music includes a black bottom, a tango, vaudeville and melodies that outdo
Puccini. Sung in German.
