The Threepenny Opera: a skewering social critique with a rousing musical score

This iconic work by Brecht and Weill is a landmark of modern theatre. Brecht broke down the fourth wall and Weill ushered in a new kind of musical theatre integrating jazz into his scintillating score. The Threepenny Opera is part satire, part aesthetic innovation and sheer theatrical invention.

The Threepenny Opera
