If you love music, make sure you don’t sleep on .

      The Music Man [Sepia ] Sepia has brought us the original London cast recording of Meredith Willson's The Music is, for all practical purposes, a musical . Kurt Weill was a leading composer for musical theater during the early 20th century. The Las Vegas Philharmonic will perform his famous "Mack the Knife" from The Threepenny Opera, Nocturne from Lady in the Dark, Weill's 2nd Symphony and Seven Deadly Sins sung by special guest, Storm Large.. Donato Cabrera, conductor.

    Gertrude Lawrence’s megahit, Lady in the Dark, groundbreaking in its day for its then novel use of psychoanalysis in dissecting its fashion magazine editor heroine’s romantic and business indecision, might register as hopelessly dated today despite the quality of Moss Hart’s book, and the fabulous score by Kurt Weill and Ira Gershwin.   One of the milestones of 20th century musical theatre, The Threepenny Opera continues to inspire composers and playwrights today. Composer Kurt Weill and playwright Bertolt Brecht turn the old-fashioned opera form upside down, bringing grit and political views of s Berlin to the stage.
