The Beggar’s Opera : A pictorial review

Last week, at the height of the glorious English summer, I decided to go and see John Gay’s classic popular opera, The Beggar’s Opera. An interesting piece that at the time satirised the excess of Italian opera, it is perhaps most famous today for Kurt Weill’s and Bertold  Brecht’s adaptation that turned it into The Threepenny Opera and the originator of the song, Mac the Knife. Anyway in a change to my normal prose, today’s review comes in the form of a flowchart.
