To recap on the show itself, the opera is based on the sly melodies of composer Kurt Weill and the daring of playwright Bertolt Brecht who come together onstage in this unique and world renowned dark comedy. Set in the impoverished back alleys of Victorian London, The Threepenny Opera follows underworld antihero Mackie Messer (a.k.a. Mack the Knife) as he tries to woo Polly Peachum, the Beggar Kings daughter, and elude the authorities - all whilst keeping his other less savoury lady friends and gang of loyal thieves appeased. At the forefront of his desires though is his ultimate yearning to steal and corrupt his way into the society of the middle class.
With its world of corruption and dread, The Threepenny Opera remains a benchmark of twentieth century theatre and demands the audience ask the question – can beggars really be choosers? With classic songs including the Swing staple ‘Mack the Knife’, this dark comedy is a show not to be missed. Not only will you be thoroughly entertained, but left to question important questions about the morality of society.
Suitable for those ages 11+, this show will take place 1 – 3 March and tickets as mentioned earlier, can be purchased above.
This is a musical like no other….do not miss it!’
