UWEC: The Threepenny Opera

The Threepenny Opera tells the story of the nefarious Macheath and his encounter with the equally corrupt Peachum family on the eve of the coronation of Queen Victoria. With its hard truths, realistic view of the world, and beloved songs like" Ballad of Mack the Knife" and "Pirate Jenny," this "opera for beggars" offers biting commentary of the establishment in an unconventional vaudevillian/cabaret rendering of this iconic story. The performance will be using Marc Blitzstein's English translation of the text.
