The Threepenny Opera opens at Shoreline Community College Feb 28

Monday, January 20, 2020

The ThreePenny Opera by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill opens at Shoreline Community College on February 28, 2020.

The Threepenny Opera is a biting satire of the post-war rise of capitalism, organized crime, and a timeless tale of how the poor struggle to survive. 

Kurt Weill’s jazzy score provides a thrilling backdrop to this tale of debauchery and deception. Based on The Beggar’s Opera, Threepenny Opera recounts the legend of Macheath (Mack the Knife), a charming and deadly crime lord on the verge of turning his illegal empire into a legitimate business. 

When Macheath secretly marries young Polly Peachum, her father is enraged, and an electrifying and breathless journey begins through the rotting underworld of London. 

Based on Simon Stephen’s brilliant translation for the English National Theater (2016), this production transforms an iconic theater classic into a tale that will thrill and excite!
