His collaboration with composer Kurt Weill in particular created popular music classics such as Mack The Knife and Alabama Song. An influential theatre practitioner of the twentieth century, Brecht made equally significant contributions to dramaturgy and theatrical production, the latter particularly through the seismic impact of the tours undertaken by the Berliner Ensemble — the post-war theatre company operated by Brecht and his wife and long-time collaborator, the actress Helene Weigel — with its internationally acclaimed productions.
