The Threepenny Opera

Beggars, thieves, whores... We plunge into the colourful underworld of Soho around 1900, where bandits and bourgeois exploit each other, dream and slum it. Peachum, whose business is poverty, gets rich off the backs of false beggars who try to arouse the sympathy of passers-by. These streets are also the territory of Mack the Knife, a petty criminal with many skills. As he is neither of the charming nor gallant type, Polly Peachum falls for him, to her parents’ great chagrin. The tawdry nuptials are hastily organised by Mack’s gang in a stable. But the young woman’s happiness doesn’t last as her prince is betrayed to Tiger-Brown, the police chief and Mack’s best friend, by the jealous Pirate Jenny.
Mrs. Peachum
You had precious little morals getting married in the first place,
But did it have to be with a horse thief and a highway robber?

Act I, Scene 3
