The Convict's Opera

The Convict's OperaT1511905618
Bursting with infamy, intrigue, fun and romance, the classic musical comedy gets a fantastic re-imagining from director Max Stafford-Clark and writer Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine). On a ship bound for Australia, a group of convicts are ordered to put on a show set in the criminal underworld of London that they’ve left far behind, never to see again - a world packed with such larger than life characters as highwayman Macheath and his lover sweet Polly Peachum. Cue stormy seas (and stormy scenes), reluctant cross-dressing, and a musical score that combines the beautiful folk tunes of the original with hilarious reworkings of pop classics including Sailing, Those Were The Days, 500 Miles, You’re So Vain and I Fought The Law.
Author Stephen Jeffreys
