Summary
Mordden chronicles the romance of Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya in a dual biography that unfolds against the background of the tumultous twentieth century. The romance of Weill, the Jewish cantor's son, and Lenya, the Viennese coachman's daughter, changed the history of Western music. With Bertolt Brecht, they created one of the definitive works of the twentieth century, The Threepenny Opera, a smash that would live on in musical theatre history. They heard the same unique music, but he gave it form while she gave it life
