The Threepenny Opera description

A landmark of twentieth century musical theatre, The Threepenny Opera comes to the National Theatre in a bold new production.

Simon Stephens’ vivid and darkly comic new translation of Brecht’s book and lyrics meets Kurt Weill’s extraordinary score.

Rory Kinnear plays Macheath.

Contains filthy language and immoral behaviour.

The original German text is based on Elisabeth Hauptmann’s German translation of John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera

London scrubs up for the coronation. The thieves are on the make, the whores on the pull, the police cutting deals to keep it all out of sight.

Mr and Mrs Peachum are looking forward to a bumper day in the beggary business, but their daughter didn’t come home last night.

Mack the Knife is back in town.
