Kurt Weill, Bertolt Brecht - The Threepenny Opera (1954 New York Cast) mp3 album

Die Dreigroschenoper, Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht's radical reinterpretation of John Gay's eighteenth century operetta The Beggar's Opera, was a sensation in Europe after its German premiere in 1928. But the show, with its decadent portrait of the underworld, was less appealing to Americans when it appeared as The Threepenny Opera on Broadway in 1933 and became a quick flop. It took another 21 years and a new English adaptation by Marc Blitzstein for The Threepenny Opera to succeed in New York.

The Threepenny Opera resists virtue admirably. -New York Times, 1956. the tone of these troubled times. the kind of theater that shakes up an audience. -Chicago Daily Herald, 2008. With Brecht's cuttingly satirical look at the meaning of morality in a society populated by gangsters, beggars, prostitutes and corrupt cops, and Weill's edgy, opera-meets-cabaret score. this show was all but irresistible
