THE THREEPENNY OPERA
Book and Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht

Based on The Beggar’s Opera, written by John Gay in 1728, Kurt Weill version sets us in 1837 London, on the eve of Queen Victoria’s Coronation. Macheath – a.k.a. Mack the Knife takes centre-stage – and becomes swept-up in a whirlwind tale one of which in may just not survive.
