As part of a wider programme on the work of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill taking place in advance of June’s co-production between Rough Magic Theatre Company and Opera Theatre Company of The Rise and Fall of the City af Mahagonny, we are pleased to present a screening of The Threepenny Opera, directed by G.W. Pabst (Pandora’s Box).
A loose adaptation which differs from the play in significant respects, it nonetheless retains the original’s satirical, cynical eye, and remains a great work of early German cinema. (Notes by Kevin Coyne.)
The screening will be introduced by Diego Fasciati, Executive Producer of Rough Magic Theatre Company. Presented in co-operation with the Goethe-Institut Irland.
