German composer, Kurt Weill (1900-1950) is best remembered as a leading composer for the stage. His collaboration with playwright Jacques Deval to create the dramatised production of Marie Galante was well received.
Marie Galante was originally a novel by Deval. Weill composed music for the play in 1934, and later for the screen version. This collection of the favourite pieces from the stage show includes The Ladies from Bordeaux and Dancing Scene. For all opera or musical theatre vocalists, the songs from Marie Galante are varied and make for an exciting addition to the repertoire.
