Savage and scandalous, comic with a trailblazing score by Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht’s Threepenny Opera is celebrated worldwide. 

Peopled with beggars, thieves, and crooked police as well as an irreverent love affair between Mac the Knife (MacHeath) and his bride Polly, this satirical play lays bare the bourgeois society of Europe between the wars where absolute decadence preceded a collapse into utter chaos.
