Northern Ireland Opera and the Lyric Theatre present Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill’s thrilling and darkly comic masterpiece The Threepenny Opera, featuring classic songs like ‘The Ballad of Mack the Knife’ and ‘Pirate Jenny’.

Mack the Knife – gangster, celebrity, addict – secretly marries Polly Peachum, daughter of London’s most successful conman. Mr Peachum’s quest for revenge sets off a series of conflicts that expose the double dealings at the heart of society. How can anyone win when there is nobody left to trust?

Directed by Northern Ireland Opera Artistic Director Walter Sutcliffe, and conducted by Hard Rain SoloistEnsemble conductor Sinead Hayes.

A co-production between Northern Ireland Opera and the Lyric Theatre.
