The Threepenny Opera
Music by Kurt Weill
Book and lyrics by Bertolt Brecht
English Adaptation by Marc Blitzstein
Robin Guarino, director
Roger Grodsky, musical director
Patti James, choreographer
CCM’s groundbreaking Kurt Weill Festival continues. Set in an anachronistic Victorian London realized by Tony Award-winning guest scenic designer John Arnone, this is a work of epic theatre, challenging conventional notions of property and theatre. Part satire, part shock effects, part aesthetic innovation, part moral indictment and part sheer theatrical diversion, The Threepenny Opera asks a still-relevant question: “Who is the bigger criminal: the man who robs a bank or the man who founds one?” Deeply influenced by jazz, its opening lament, “Mack the Knife,” has become a standard recorded by Louis Armstrong, Bobby Darin, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé and countless others. Mature subject matter.
Location: Patricia Corbett Theater
Tickets: $30 adult, $19 non-UC students, $17 UC Students, $12 student rush tickets available for Saturday matinee beginning at 1 p.m. on March 2 and March 9; limit two rush tickets per student ID.

In the sweltering intolerance of 1913 Atlanta, northern and Jewish factory manager Leo Frank is wrongfully accused of murdering a 13-year-old girl under his employment. As press frenzy and public outrage overwhelm his defense, Frank’s only hope lies in a brave crusade by the Southern wife he never understood, among a people who never understood him.
