Take a Surreal Journey with Opera Parallèle as Kurt Weill's Mahagonny-Songspiel collides with Francis Poulenc's Les mamelles de Tirésias for an original post-apocalyptic steampunk opera. In search of water and an elusive paradise across a desert wasteland, a theater troupe sings the jazz-infused melodies of Weill's short opera, co-written with Bertolt Brecht in 1927. Along the way, they come upon an audience for their performance of Poulenc's outrageously surreal satire about a man who gives birth to 40,000 babies in a single day. Surreal Journey fuses these two landmark works and brings them into the 21st century. Learn More
