3 Penny Opera

11 Dec 2019 16:55


THE THREEEPENNY OPERA is set in Johannesburg at the turn of the century at the outset and catapults us in the second act into the present day.

Examining familiar themes of colonialism and resistance, political thuggery and expediency, survival and betrayal - it is a biting satire of the rise of capitalism, wrapped up in Weill's jazzy score, and the tale of Macheath (Mack the Knife), a debonair crime lord on the verge of turning his illegal empire into a legitimate business.

But, the Chief of Police is an old friend of Macheath’s. And after being arrested and imprisoned, a messenger from one of the Commissioner's cronies - the soon to be inaugurated, President.
