Adelaide College of the Arts final year students adaption of Threepenny Opera

Sep 11, 2013

Adelaide College of the Arts final year acting, technical production and design students present Bertolt Brecht’s ‘The Threepenny Opera”. 

Bertolt Brecht's landmark collaboration with Kurt Weill is considered a modern masterpiece. The blackest of comedies, full of extraordinary music, feral thieves and pimps and whores, Threepenny spits out anti-capitalist ideas that would make Julian Assange look like a conservative. 
It's 2017. The Queen is dead. Prince Charles is about to be crowned King. The city's low-lifes get the spotlight and when the most notorious gangster of all, Mac The Knife exercises his ambitions for ascension, marrying the wrong man's daughter, all hell breaks loose. Shot through with an unreserved joy that comes from the dirty spirit of Weimar cabaret, this unwieldy masterwork roars as much today as it ever did. Don't miss it.

Directed by Cameraon Goodall with Musical Direction by Quentin Grant.
