dbo:abstract
  • Trumpets and Drums (German: Pauken und Trompeten) is an adaptation of an 18th-century English Restoration comedy by Farquhar, The Recruiting Officer. It was written by the German dramatist Bertolt Brecht in collaboration with Benno Besson and Elisabeth Hauptmann. It was first performed in 1955 in a production directed by Besson, with music by Rudolf Wagner-R├ęgeny (whose songs for the play have been called "Weill-like" by John Willett). It was the first premiere of Brecht's final season at the Berliner Ensemble. Willett identifies an instance of Brecht's lifelong indebtedness to Rudyard Kipling in the play's "Song of the Women of Gaa." The production strongly influenced the English director William Gaskill's reinterpretation of Farquhar's original play for the National Theatre. (en)
