    Theater: BAM Howard Gilman Opera House / 30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11217

    Synopsis: 

    Visionary director Robert Wilson joins the world-renowned Berliner Ensemble for its New York debut in a bold new production of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's The Threepenny Opera -- a seminal work of 20th-century music theater.
    Presented at BAM in its US premiere, Wilson's production recasts the story of Peachum, Polly, and Macheath in a bewitching setting informed equally by the striking designs of German Expressionist cinema and the shattering, seductive world of Weimar-era cabaret.
