Critic Reviews for The Threepenny Opera (L'opera De Quat' Sous)

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

For those familiar with the Teutonic tongue, it is a moderately entertaining offering, but persons who anticipate enjoying the original combination of sharp satire and pleasing melody will be disappointed.

Here is an extravaganza in Hogarthian vein, but dressed out in deliciously exaggerated late 19th century costumes, and set in a romantic London underworld that never was.
