Summary
Based on John Gay's eighteenth century Beggar's Opera, The Threepenny Opera, first staged in 1928, is a vicious satire on the bourgeois capitalist society of the Weimar Republic, but set in a mock-Victorian Soho. It focuses on the feud between Macheath, an amoral criminal, and his father-in-law, a racketeer who controls and exploits London's beggars and is intent on having Macheath hanged
