Description
Recorded live at the LA Opera in March 2007, this riveting production of Brecht and Weill's fierce satire of capitalism also aired on PBS.

"An embarrassment of riches…. Feingold's translation provided an extra fillip of immediacy…. LuPone's Leocadia Begbick radiates an insouciant sex appeal…. Revealingly clad, eye-riveting Audra McDonald's slinky whore with a heart of brass is a more persuasive Jenny than Catherine Malfitano's tearfully remorseful and modestly clothed waffie at Salzburg."—American Record Guide

"My opera pick of the year … is this stunning Los Angeles Opera production … smartly cast with singers from both sides of the opera/Broadway divide."—Fanfare

"MacDonald's warm and sensuous soprano is perfect for Weill, and everything she sings here has a gleaming clarity. Tenor Anthony Dean Griffey's singing is fabulous—full and powerful and passionately felt. Patti LuPone makes an indelible impression—this is a singing actor who knows how to use her voice to etch an unforgettable character."—All Music Guide
