Synopsis

This new version of The Beggar’s Opera, one of the most influential and important pieces ever written (in 1728) and the precursor of Brecht’s A Threepenny Opera, will update the story into modern language and set it in an edgy, contemporary world.  It is by turns comic, dark, witty and sharp.  The show will include new songs and street/hip-hop dance choreography. It will be a large scale show with 40 actors and musicians. We shall be creating the first stage of it this year and hope to build on it over the coming years.
