The Atlanta Opera presents The Threepenny Opera
May 2 - May 8
You are about to see an opera for beggars. Since this opera was conceived with a splendor only a beggar could imagine, and since it had to be so cheap even a beggar could afford it, it is called The Threepenny Opera.
The Atlanta Opera’s world premiere version of The Threepenny Opera is lovingly crafted by Tomer Zvulun in partnership with the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music.
An army of puppets created for this production by the Center for Puppetry Arts are led by their live doppelgängers. “Mack the Knife,” “Pirate Jenny” and ballads for broken relationships, struggle, love, life, and death are the heart of the production.
Happy endings are the rule, but the ones who walk in shadow know the score.
Performed in English with English supertitles
The Big Tent at Cobb Energy Centre
