"The bourgeoisie’s affectation for robbers can be explained by the misapprehension that robbers aren’t citizens." (Bertolt Brecht) A world which rewards the superior crooks cannot be a good one. The Threepenny Opera is merciless in laying bare what the audience never wanted to see; that we are the ones sustaining this wickedness. Maurice Lenhard and his team present this classic as a struggle for survival in a cold and clashing world.
