19:30 (18:30 on June 16)

Peachum, successful in the begging business, and Mackie Messer, gangster boss, fight for supremacy in London's underworld. Berthold Brecht shows them as businessmen with whom we citizens in the audience have more in common than we think. In his celebrated production, director Antú Romero Nunes alienates the audience. He has Brecht appear in person and proclaim: "An audience member without imagination can go straight home at this event." On an almost empty stage, everything here is imagination, tempo, and play. This theater piece will be performed in German with English surtitles.
Tickets are CHF 30-115 for adults, CHF 20 for students up to age 30, and CHF 20 for kids up to age 16.
