The Weill-Lenya Research Center


The Research Center holds a wide variety of material that sheds light on the lives and careers of Kurt Weill and Lotte Lenya. The collections consist predominantly of scores, scripts and libretti, correspondence, programs and clippings, photographs, books and journals, and audio and video recordings. Similar media are filed together in groups of series; each series has a number. With the general exception of scripts and libretti, books, journals, and commercial recordings, each series has a finding aid (item-level inventory) which is available upon request; some finding aids are linked from the series list accessible below.
