The Viviana Durante Company brings an evening of scintillating Weimar-inspired song and dance, featuring the music of Kurt Weill, to Wilton's Music Hall.

Legendary ballerina Viviana Durante returns to the UK stage in 8:38, a newly-commissioned work by Olivier Award-winning choreographer Javier de Frutos, set to music including the Kurt Weill/Lotte Lenya classic September Song. Viviana is partnered by the mesmerising and multi-talented Mbulelo Ndabeni.

Eight world-class singers and musicians will perform favourite songs from The Threepenny Opera by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht and a complete concert version of Brecht and Weill's extraordinary tragicomic satire on capitalism, Seven Deadly Sins, in the UK premiere of a sensational new arrangement for two pianos and percussion by Jonathan Greer.

Decadence and danger await in the atmospheric surroundings of Wilton's, the oldest working music hall in the world.

Gala Night Thursday 16th May
Enjoy the best seats in the house followed by prohibition cocktails and Weimar music with Viviana Durante and members of the cast for £95.

All proceeds will go toward developing future work for the Viviana Durante Company (registered charity).
