Date of the opening: 8th of October 2019

Police chief, burglars, killers, prostitutes, beggars and the queen…

The notorious criminal, Mack the Knife secretely marries Peachum’s daughter. Peachum, the king of London beggars takes his revenge by conspiring with Mack the Knife’s friend, the police officer, and together they manage to put the gang leader into prison.

Brecht’s expressionist play with its amoral heroes and dark romanticism presents the power of wealth in Victorian England. We see a world of betrayal as part of the daily routine, where actions don’t have consequences and the betrayed seeks comfort on the shoulder of the traitor.

This upcoming performance might be one of the most complex projects of the past few years.
