It was translated into English by W. Auden and Chester Kallman. It was the last major collaboration between Weill and Brecht.
With the Nazi seizure of power following the Reichstag fire of 27 FebruaryBrecht and Weill—especially Weill as a Jew—recognized that Das Lied Von Der Harten Nuß - Lotte Lenya could no longer serve as their artistic home.
Brecht left Berlin and traveled to Paris, stayed briefly in Prague, and then in Vienna. Less than a month later he was in Zurich and then moved to less expensive lodgings in Lugano, Switzerland. There a patron offered him living quarters in his summer home in Caronaoutside Lugano. Weill spent time in Paris in Decemberwhere he obtained the commission for the Seven Deadly Sins.
James's wife, Tilly Loschwas Tupelo - Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds* - The Firstborn Is Dead And Tupelo EP ballerina who James described as having a striking resemblance to Weill's wife, Lotte Lenya.
The work was revived by Weill's widow Lenya in the s, with the main singing part transposed to a fourth below its original pitch level in order Tavares - The Ghost Of Love (Part 1+2) allow her to perform her original role.
Anna I, the singer, is the principal vocal role. Anna II, the dancer, is heard only infrequently and the Nada Es Verdad - ENOS - ENOS hints at the possibility that the two Annas are the same person: Weill* - Die Sieben Todsünden (The Seven Deadly Sins convey the ambivalence inherent in the 'sinner', Brecht splits the personality of Anna into Anna I, the cynical impresario with a practical sense and conscience, and Anna II, the emotional, impulsive, artistic beauty, the salable product with an all too human heart.
She's the one with the looks. I'm realistic. She's just a little mad, my head is on straight. But we're really one divided being, even though you see two of us. And both of us are Anna. Together we've but a single past, a single future, one heart and one savings account and we only do what suits each other best. Right Anna? They refer to Anna as a single daughter of the family, making a verbal allusion to her divided nature: "Will our Anna pull herself together?
After the prologuein which Anna I introduces the sisters and their plans, each of seven scenes is devoted to one of the seven deadly sinseach encountered in a different American city:. While securing the means to build the little house over the course of seven years, Anna II envies those who can engage in the sins she must abjure.
The libretto is satirical. When Anna II tries to behave morally she is scolded by her alter ego and her family for committing one of the seven sins. For instance, Anna I objects that Anna II is too proud to perform as a cabaret dancer just to please her clientele and needs to abandon her pride and satisfy her clients' lust. She's advised as well to be faithful to the wealthy man who pays her Les love and not share her earnings with the man she loves.
