‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in Beautiful Outdoor Setting

'A Midsummer Night's Dream' in Beautiful Outdoor Setting

“I attended an “off-campus” Wolf Trap evening’s entertainment closer to home at Union Market in North-East Washington. There [as part of By The People], Halcyon, Wolf Trap Opera and the Hong Kong Ballet presented recently “The Seven Deadly Sins,” a forty-five-minute Modernist work from 1933, with music by Kurt Weill and text by Bertolt Brecht. Some see this as a play by Brecht, others as an opera by Weill and still others as a ballet chanté or “sung ballet” by both. It is all three, yet defying the conventions of all three.”
