Director Troy Nickerson and Music Director Kristen Nauditt bring a contemporary lens to Brecht and Weill’s cabaret-like political and social satire.
Features a plot involving the infamous and debonair criminal Mack the Knife, and Polly Peachum, the woman he marries much to the chagrin of her father. First performed in Berlin in 1928, The Threepenny Opera, set in 1800’s London, is a biting commentary on the post-war rise of capitalism and the ensuing corruption of humanity.
With a jazzy score, it is a vibrant and gritty re-telling of a well-loved opera and operetta classic. Photo credit: Emily Jones
