About

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.
