The Threepenny Opera (Apr. 5-7)

April, 5-7, 2018 | 7:30 PM

The Lindenwood Theater

Brecht and Weill turned to John Gay's 18th-century 'The Beggar's Opera' to fashion this savage, biting commentary on bourgeois capitalism and modern morality. Set in Victorian London, the bitter tale is told of the predatory outlaw known as Mack the Knife. He secretly marries the daughter of Soho's underworld boss, but is soon betrayed by his sinister in-laws and sent to prison. The Threepenny Opera promises a menacing finale of ferocious irony, one you won’t want to miss. – Description by the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization

By Bertolt Brecht
