Two or three months ago I bought an LP with excerpts from Die Dreigroschenoper at a second hand shop, but I never got around to listening to it. Tonight, feeling for a bit of Brecht/Weill, I finally put it on. Only, instead of Wolfgang Neuss singing "Moritat von Mackie Messer", I got this.

Don't get me wrong; I have been an ABBA fan since 1978, long before I could speak English, but even with my love for contrasts and paradoxes this was a bit different from what I expected. Oh well, I still have other recordings (including one with Nina Hagen as Frau Peachum).
Mood:: 'mixed' mixed
Music:: ABBA: I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do, I Do

Är det någon mer än jag (svag för Brecht) som är intresserad av att gå och se Tolvskillingsoperan på Stockholms Stadsteater? De flesta föreställningarna fram till nyår är utsålda (se länken ovan), men det finns fortfarande platser kvar vissa dagar.

Summary in Swedish:
A question if anyone would like to see Brecht's The Threepenny Opera.
