A groundbreaking musical tale of London’s most notorious criminal, Macheath.
The Threepenny Opera, “an opera for beggars”, is the groundbreaking musical tale of London’s most notorious criminal, Macheath. Set in a society obsessed with money, filled with corruption, where evil runs rampant, and all seem immune to the sufferings of the poor, Brecht and Weill’s most famous collaboration, a satire of both traditional opera and the capitalistic Weimar Republic, includes some of their most well-known songs.
