BAM will Weill away spring 2000

Academy rolls out new season lineup

While it may not match 1999’s parade of centenary tributes — to Hitchcock, Ellington, Coward — the new year promises to bring at least one as the Brooklyn Academy of Music rolls out its spring 2000 season lineup.

Kurt Weill Celebration,” consisting of three programs centered on the Weimar-era musical theater maverick, will be the centerpiece of 15 events slated at BAM from February to June.

Stay a Weill

Programs include “Weill Style: A Kurt Weill Centenary Gala Presentation,” featuring performances by Bebe Neuwirth and Ann Magnuson, among others; a perf of orchestral drama “The Eternal Road,” which will be the largest production ever staged at BAM; and ancillary seminar and film series “All the Weill,” to include unspoolings of Fritz Lang’s “You and Me” as well as a 1931 version of tuner “The Threepenny Opera.”

Among other season highlights are three new Royal Shakespeare Co. productions: T.S. Eliot’s verse play “The Family Reunion,” directed by Adrian Noble; “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” directed by Michael Boyd; and Schiller’s political tragedy “Don Carlos,” directed by Gale Edwards.

Also on the agenda is the weeklong festival “Philip on Film,” consisting of four screenings set to music composed and performed by Philip Glass. Mikhail Baryshnikov’s troupe, the White Oak Dance Project, will premiere three works with performances by Baryshnikov.
