“This is a comedy, terse, sensual and romantic, with a moving love story underpinning the hero’s adventures.” – opening at Poniatowski on March 19th.
There are a lot more live music events going on in Leipzig this weekend, and I don’t pretend to know or remember them all, but can give you some pointers regarding things that are brought to my attention. If you know of any other events you’d like to share, music-related or otherwise, please let us know via http://www.Facebook.com/leipglo.

She tells some of her story on today’s LeipGlo.
