  • "Brecht's famous adaptation to the modern era of John Gay's The beggar's opera, satirizing social and political beliefs through its portrayal of a world of thieves and prostitutes."
  • ""Brutal, scandalous, perverted, yet humorous, hummable, and with a happy ending- Bertolt Brecht's revolutionary masterpiece The Threepenny Opera is a landmark of modern drama that has become embedded in the Western cultural imagination. Through the love story of Polly Peachum and "Mack the Knife" Macheath, the play satirizes the bourgeois of the Weimar Republic, revealing a society at the height of decadence and on the verge of chaos. Complemented with music by Kurt Weill, it was one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce jazz into the theater, and the song "Mack the Knife" became one of the most popular and widely recorded songs of the twentieth century."--Book cover."
  • "First staged in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm, Berlin (now the home of the Berliner Ensemble), The Threepenny Opera remains one of Brecht's best loved and most performed plays. Based on John Gay's eighteenth-century Beggar's Opera, the play is a satire on the bourgeois capitalist society of the Weimar Republic but set in a mock-Victorian Soho. With Kurt Weill's music, which was one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce the jazz idiom into the theatre, it became a popular hit throughout the western world. This translation by John Willett and Ralph Manheim includes Brecht's own notes and discarded songs as well as an extensive editorial commentary on the genesis of the play."
