The UR International Theatre Program commissions its first original theatrical score, a pop-rock version of Bertolt Brecht’s timely and powerful work about the brutality and sacrifice of war, with music by acclaimed up-and-coming composer, Matt Marks, and directed by Nigel Maister.
Brecht’s original play (Mother Courage and her Children) is considered by many to be the greatest anti-war play ever written and one of the towering achievements of 20th-century drama. Marks’ contemporary music, which mixes genres from rock to pop, imbues this superb drama about greed, hunger, and the rapacity of conflict with a driving immediacy and explosive contemporary energy. Score World Premiere.
