Music sources for Kurt Weill's Lady in the dark in the collection of the Weill-Lenya Research Center, 1940-[ongoing].

The collection forms part of Series 10, which consists mainly of music manuscripts: non-autograph originals and photocopies of both non-autographs and autographs. It also includes rental materials and some arrangements by other composers. Briefly stated, all music materials for the works of Weill other than those offered for sale by publishers are included, whether in score or parts, as long as they present his music without fundamentally altering its character. (For more details on inclusion/exclusion, see the record for the whole series--"Music sources for the works of Kurt Weill ...," ID NYWS94-A2.) Of particular importance in the collection of materials on Lady in the dark are the following: edited and corrected full and vocal scores, prepared by John Mauceri and David Loud; a rental vocal score issued by Tams-Witmark; photocopies of certain items laid into the autograph full score; vocal scores of certain numbers; and two or three arranged versions of My ship.

As a result of the success of his Broadway musical Lady in the dark in 1941, German-born composer Kurt Weill and his wife, the singing actress Lotte Lenya, were able to buy "Brook House," in Rockland County, New York, moving there during their sixth year in the United States. From Brook House, and a couple of addresses in Los Angeles during his trips there, Weill kept in touch, until a month before his death, with his parents, who had emigrated to Israel in 1935.
