The Threepenny Opera
23 Jan, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
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…
What fate awaits MacHeath? Will he escape death on the gallows?
Starring a young vibrant cast of up and coming West Australian performers and musicians this is one production not to be missed.
