I've heard many versions of the Threepenny Opera over the years (my dad had the 1954 Lotte Lenya album and played it often when I was growing up), but this is the one that I have loved the most, and always come back to - both the performances and the translated lyrics are superb. Very dark and haunting. I don't know why it never got a CD release. So glad it's on iTunes now!
At last! Been Waiting for this release for years
I saw this production and loved both the translation and the performances. (BTW, the text was used for the Mack the Knife movie.) I have the original LP release and put it on cassette and ripped it to digital off the turntable. But, I've decided to buy this remastered version to get the sound. Thanks.
The Best The Best The Best
I have an old, rickety tape cassette copy, made from an album that I borrowed from the library back in the 80's. I've been looking for this forever! This version of Three Penny by Joseph Papp's Public Theatre & the New York Shakespeare Festival is absolutely the best -- Plus, it features the late, great Puerto Rican actor, Raul Julia as Mack the Knife. The Three Penny Opera, in my opinion, is probably the greatest play written for musical theatre. Played straight dead-pan, this play is hilarious and poignant; true political satire -- always relevant to our times. Thank you.
