At the Kurt-Weill-Centre, a permanent exhibition in German and English provides information on the life and work of Kurt Weill. Besides boards that outline the various stages of Weill’s life, the visitor can learn more about the Dessau-born composer by watching a 30-minute film that features historic film sequences of Weill himself. Furthermore, one can listen to selected audio files of Weill’s music as well as a radio interview, recorded with Kurt Weill in English on 9 March 1941.
