Chapter 4 provides a lesson plan for teaching Bertolt Brecht’s adaptation of the noh play Tanikō (The Valley Hurling) for his lehrstück or learning play Der Jasager with a score by Kurt Weill in 1930. When the play failed to meet Brecht’s pedagogical and political goals – when it failed to teach the right kind of submission and consent – he revised it at least twice and then asked that the versions be performed together, although they never have.

Keywords:   Der Jasager/Neinsager, Kurt Weill, lehrstück, socialism, consent, subversion
