"The Threepenny Opera" is a savage and biting commentary on capitalism and modern morality. Mack the Knife is a dapper criminal who leaves a trail of broken hearts and slashed throats wherever he roams. The dashing thieves, saucy prostitutes and scheming entrepreneurs of Mack’s seedy underworld trade in love, sex, murder and theft in order to survive in a society spinning out of control.
