About this product
- DescriptionOn board a convict ship to Australia, the prisoners stage their own version of John Gay's 18th-century romp-with-songs, The Beggar's Opera , finding it easy to identify with the villaius but charming hero, Macheath, whose repeated brushes with the law serve only to interrupt his compulsive womanizing.
