  1. An 18th Century parody of the Italian Opera23 December 2013 I want to give this play a high score simply because of it s context and content, and as it is one of the only satirical operas that has survived from the early 18th Century should also give this play, orproperly opera, some credit Now, when we hear the word opera we usually thing of it s not over until the fat lady sings and then Bart Simpson going is she fat enough for you and you would actually be quite correct, because An 18th Century parody of the Italian Opera23 December 2013 I want to give this play a high score simply because of it s context and content, and as it is one of the only satirical operas that has survived from the early 18th Century should also give this play, orproperly opera, some credit Now, when we hear the word opera we usually thing of it s not over until the fat lady sings and then Bart Simpson going is she fat enough for you and you would actually be quite correct, because that is the type of opera that we would...

  2. By all accounts this play has aged horribly I mean how many times and in how many variations can you read about women being called nearly every version of woman with loose virtue But, despite this, the play works, very well, extremely well.The reason for this, for me, is that the play never overindulges or comes off as exploitative in any way It s a boisterous and funny look at a certain place in a certain time where and when the virtues of everyone were in question And John Gay makes wo By all accounts this play has aged horribly I mean how many times and in how many variations can you read about women being called nearly every version of woman with loose virtue But, despite this, the play works, very well, extremely well.The reason for this, for me, is that the play never overindulges or comes off as exploitative in any way It s a boisterous and funny look at a certain place in a certain time where and when the virtues of everyone were in question And John Gay makes wonderful copy of this as one of the greater overriding themes of the work, that corruption unifies the high and low o...

  3. This is by faaaar the best eighteenth century play I ve read It s Dickensian in its portrayal of the underbelly of English society whores, criminals, highwaymen, corrupt lawyers.It s comical and moving and poignant by turns, and I m kind of in love with Macheath even though he is categorically THE WORST.I want to write fanfiction about the gang and Macheath and Polly and Lucy it just captures the imagination so easily.It s also weirdly feminist in parts when it means to be comical.Either way, This is by faaaar the best eighteenth century play I ve read It s Dickensian in its portrayal of the underbelly of English society whores, criminals, highwaymen, corrupt lawyers.It s comical and moving and poignant by turns, and I m kind of in love with Macheath even though he is categorically THE WORST.I want to write fanfiction about the gang and Macheath and Polly and Lucy it just captures the imagination so easily.It s also weirdly feminist in parts w...

  4. Probably received like Trainspotting in the 18th cent Tarts and highwaymen, cheap gin, betrayal, bigamyand songs.Social satire that still has an edge.Shorter than I thought it would be.Like to see it performed though.Did Adam Ant read or see it Dandy Highwayman indeed

  5. Our story begins with a Mr Peachum, a fence and thief catcher, whose daughter Polly has has secretly married famous highwayman Macheath So as a father who makes his living blackmailing thieves, he decides to kill his son in law so his daughter can inherit a fortune One problem Polly found out.This wacky premise is accompanied by equally wacky songs, whores talking like ladies of court about taking money from men, comically bad hero Macheath who has promised marriage to at least 40 women and Our story begins with a Mr Peachum, a fence and thief catcher, whose daughter Polly has has secretly married famous highwayman Macheath So as a father who makes his living blackmailing thieves, he decides to kill his son in law so his daughter can inherit a fortune One problem Polly found out.This wacky premise is accompanied by equa...

  7. I recall being told once upon a time that the poet John Gay was an ancestor, and I formed an intention to read something of his And then there was a reference to The Beggar s Opera and the Three Penny Opera in something I was reading on the kindle, which made it dead easy to download a copy to satisfy my curiosity.Meh Satire doesn t hold up very well over time Likely a production could be very winning, particularly if filmed by Tim Burton, but the script isn t much, nor terribly amusing Stil I recall being told once upon a time that the poet John Gay was an ancestor, and I formed an intention to read something of his And then there was a reference to The Beggar s Opera and the Three Penny Opera in something I was reading on the kindle, which made it dead easy to download a copy to satisfy my curiosity.Meh Satire doesn t hold up very well over time Likely a production cou...
