Description:

"Brecht zielt mit der Dreigroschenoper auf die Entlarvung der korrupten Bourgeoisie. Auf der einen Seite erscheint der Bettlerk�nig Peachum als Musterbeispiel des Gesch�ftemachers, f�r den Not und Armut nichts anderes sind als Mittel zum Zweck; auf der anderen Seite entpuppt sich der skrupellose Verbrecher Mackie Messer als Prototyp sogenannter b�rgerlicher Solidit�t. Peachum mobilisiert die Bettlermassen, organisiert eine Demonstration des Elends und droht, den Kr�nungszug zu st�ren, falls der korrupte Polizeichef Tiger-Brown sich weigern sollte, Mackie Messer zu verhaften, der Peachums Kreise st�rte."

Bertolt Brecht was born on February 10, 1898 in Augsburg, Bavaria, and died on August 14, 1956. He was a German playwright, theatre director and Marxist. The modest house where he was born is today preserved as a Brecht Museum. Brecht formed a writing collective which became prolific and very influential. He wrote many lyrics for musicals and collaborated with Kurt Weill to create Die Dregroschenoper -- the biggest hit in 1920s Berlin. Brecht experimented with his own theater and company -- the Berliner Ensemble -- which put on his plays under his direction and which continued after his death with the assistance of his wife. Brecht aspired to create political theater, and it is difficult to evaluate his work in purely aesthetic terms. Brecht died in 1956.
