The Threepenny Opera
by Alamo City Opera

Jun. 13 - Jun. 14, 2020

Mack is back! Enter a seamy underworld of salacious cynicism and merry anarchy filled with beggars, hoodlums and prostitutes. This brillian musical is a political and social satire about the corruption of humanity and a sharp critique of capitalism. Brutal, scandalous, yet humorous and with a happy ending, The Threepenny Opera is a landmark of modern drama and includes one of the most popular songs of the twentieth century, "The Ballad of Mack the Knife."

Performed in English.

Composer, Kurt Weill     Libettist, Bertolt Brecht

based on The Beggar's Opera by John Gay
