[Die Dreigroschenoper]

A play by Bertolt Brecht adapted from Elizabeth Hauptmann's German version of John Gay's The Beggar's Opera.

Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht

Music by Kurt Weill

An artistic destiny fulfilled, visionary director Robert Wilson joins the world-renowned Berliner Ensemble in a bold production of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera–a seminal work of 20th-century music theater.  Wilson's production recasts the story of Peachum, Polly, and Macheath in a bewitching setting informed equally by the striking designs of German Expressionist cinema and the shattering, seductive world of Weimar-era cabaret.
