THE THREEPENNY OPERA by BERTOLT BRECHT

The play has been awarded by the critics and the Andalucian Communications media with the EL PUBLICO award at the Performing Art of 2006.

The Threepenny Opera is one of the most significant and influential work of the 20th century. Premiered for the first time in 1928, it has been an innovative event that brought radical changes in the idea of the opera, of musical and cabaret.

The subject of the play is among the most present: mafia trading with poverty, as nowadays happens with the immigrants; prostitution; corruption and poverty. This play is especially interesting for its grotesque tone, the social disclaim and the cabaret, the performance is always keeping direct relationship with the audience. Before the play Mackie Navaja asks to the public “what is more dangerous between a bank assault and a bank foundation?”

With no doubt the staging is the most ambitious among Atalaya performances. Besides the stable team, there is the intervention of 7 musicians-including the music director, Luis Navarro-that interpret live more than twenty music themes by Kurt Weill, among them there are Mackie Ballade, Pirate Jenny, The ideals song, Barbara song and the Whorehouse Ballade songs that have also been interpreted by singers like Louis Amstrong, Edith Piaff, Nina Hagen, Tom Waits, Ute Lemper, Sting…

The play toured through more than 32 Spanish Provinces, with many sold out like  happened in Círculo de Bellas Artes of  Madrid, that programmed the play for the opening of the XIII Muestra de Autonomías.
