Opera At Rutgers Presents: The Threepenny Opera

Twisted tales of class and corruption hit a theatrical high note

The Threepenny Opera is an ironic howl of anguish over man’s inhumanity to man. Based on John Gay’s and Johann Pepusch’s revolutionary 1728 work The Beggar’s Opera, turn-of-the-century Germany serves as the socialist backdrop for the show. Opera at Rutgers takes the poignant tale and moves the time period to the days preceding the coronation of George VI in May 1937 for an intriguing and historical twist of fate. You don’t wanna miss this reimagined tale of class and corruption. Please note that all tickets sales are final. No refund or credits.
