The University of Aberdeen Opera Society presents its production of Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's 'The Threepenny Opera'.
Translated by Robert David MacDonald and Jeremy Sams, The Threepenny Opera is a biting satire on capitalism's post-war rise. The story centres around the criminal Macheath (Mack the Knife), as he tries to shape his illegal empire into a legitimate business in Victorian London. When he marries young Polly Peachum, her father is enraged. Peachum controls London's beggars. He strives to remove Macheath or anyone else who would threaten his position in the underground. In a world where our protagonists can't tell their friends from their enemies, drama is sure to ensue.
