An enchanting chamber music and dance work about a child whose toys come to life, Zaubernacht is Kurt Weill's earliest work for the stage. This production by the KCO at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Lower Manhattan will be the first in New York City using Weill's long-lost, original orchestrations since Zaubernacht's American premiere in 1925! A one-act pantomime for an instrumental ensemble of nine and a troupe of dancers, Zaubernacht will appeal to both young and adult audiences. For these three performances- two on weekday evenings and one on Sunday afternoon especially for children- the KCO will be collaborating with the innovative choreographer Jody Oberfelder, who will create original characters based on Weill's dynamic score.
