As London scrubs up for the coronation, the police cut deals left and right to keep the filth out of sight. Meanwhile, Mr. and Mrs. Peachum’s daughter can’t be found…and a notorious gangster is back in town. A landmark 20th century work rarely performed by a professional opera company, The Threepenny Opera sends up a satiric critique of capitalism and the meaning of morality when living in the slums.

Approximate Run Time: 2 hours and 55 minutes, 1 intermission.
