The seven deadly sins


Sinfully dark with Weill and Brecht

Cabaret and ballet come together when the soprano Eli Kristin Hanssveen and dancer Georgie Rose perform The Seven Deadly Sins by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht. Experience Hanne Tømta’s critically acclaimed production of the satirical and anti-capitalist work from 1933 on the Second Stage. 

The Seven Deadly Sins, written in 1933, is the most successful co-creation between Brecht and Weill. It is teeming with irony and ambiguity, enhanced by the duality of the main character.

Anna and her sister travel to seven American cities in order to provide for her family without committing any of the deadly sins. This proves to be impossible. During their journey, they encounter all seven of them: sloth, pride, wrath, gluttony, lust, greed and envy. 

Anna and her sister of the same name are two sides of the same person. The one is beautiful and emotional, the other practical and sensible. The one is sung by Eli Kristin Hanssveen of the Norwegian National Opera, the other danced by the Norwegian National Ballet’s Georgie Rose.
