14 Of Our Favorite Events In D.C. This Weekend

June 21, 2018 | Lauren Landau, DCist

SEVEN DEADLY SINS: Halcyon, the Hong Kong Ballet, and Wolf Trap Opera are teaming up for a new production of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht’s satirical operetta The Seven Deadly Sins. Part of the By The People Festival, the show has appeal for dance, theater, visual art, and opera lovers alike. Split into two halves, the first part explores American music and landscapes through dance, photography, and well-known songs. The second half will be comprised of an English version of the 1933 opera-ballet. It follows two sisters on a seven-year journey across the U.S. They’re looking to earn enough money to build a home for their family. During their multi-city adventure, they instead encounter each of the cardinal sins. You can also catch the performance Saturday at 8 p.m. (Dock 5 at Union Market, 1 p.m. $45)
