Brecht’s adaptation of the historical Beggar’s Opera to modern German 1928, highlighting a world rot with corruption at all levels of society, feeding on the poor and highlighting the rich getting away with high crimes due to their capital means.
Threepenny‘s world was inspired by the saccharin colors and angst of 1920’s German art and photography with a mix of sickly vibrant colors and shadows and textures.
