The Transgressive Theatre-Opera presents - The Lieder, Chanson and Hungarian, Songs of Franz Lehar

  • Saturday, March 24, 2018
  • 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM
  • DANK Haus

Transgressive Theatre-Opera concludes its season with The Leider, Chanson, and Hungarian Songs of Franz Lehár. This concert event, featuring all female artists, once more examines the larger human condition from that perspective.

Lehár is thought to be German, since his wonderfully successful operettas were written in that language. His Merry Widow is still one of the most popular operettas in the standard repertory. However, many do not know that Lehár was Austro-Hungarian. Born in Hungary, and returning to Hungary before his death, Lehár penned glorious art song in his first tongue, while of course exercising his acquired understanding of the German tongue. 

 This special concert has the potential to unite us all, at a time in our country's history when division seems to be the order of the day helping us to momentarily rise above the scandals that  beset us, while feeding our collective souls. 

The performance will take place on March 24 at 8:00 at Chicago’s DANK Haus, 4740 N Western Ave., which is wheelchair accessible.
