Based on the eighteenth-century The Beggar's Opera by John Gay, the play is a satire on the bourgeois society of the Weimar Republic, but set in a mock-Victorian Soho. With Kurt Weill's music, which was one of the earliest and most successful attempts to introduce the jazz idiom into the theatre, it became a popular hit throughout the western world. This new edition is published here in John Willett and Ralph Manhein's classic translation with commentary and notes by Anja Hartl.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2022-02-17T12:30:39Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Weill, Kurt</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Hartl, Anja</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2022</dcterms:issued> <dc:publisher>Bloomsbury Methuen Drama</dc:publisher> <dc:creator>Brecht, Berthold</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Weill, Kurt</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Brecht, Berthold</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:publisher>London</dc:publisher> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>The Threepenny Opera</dcterms:title> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2022-02-17T12:30:39Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
