Malpopita (1931) was his second opera for radio, a Dadaistic comedy combining futurist elements with Brechtian irony; young Adam (sung by Thorsten Hennig) is sick of working in the Metropolis-like factory that employs him and longs to escape to the exotic island of Malpopita to live a life of ease and comfort. He quits his job, boards a ship for Malpopita, falls in love with the captain's daughter Evelyne (Lilia Milek), and finds a rival in Steuermann Richard (Klaus Wegener), who ultimately becomes so jealous that he threatens to kill Adam.
