Taylor Theatre, 406 Tate Street, Greensboro, NC 27402
A milestone of 20th century musical theater, The Threepenny Opera (Die Dreigroschenoper) rolls unstoppably into the 21st century. In this opera "by and for beggars," playwright and composer transformed saccharine, old-fashioned opera and operetta forms, while incorporating sharp political perspective and the sound of 1920’s Berlin dance bands and cabaret. Includes the famous song “Mack the Knife”. Music by Kurt Weill; Book/Lyrics by Bertolt Brecht; Directed by Christine Morris.
$20, seniors/students $15, UNCG students $10.
