Jenny Diver, Threepenny Opera - Tacoma Opera

  • Tacoma Opera Rialto Theater Tacoma, WA USA (map)

Tess will sing the role of Jenny Diver in Kurt Weill'sThreepenny Opera, "a gritty tale about a sex addicted outlaw, Mack the Knife, who marries the daughter of an underworld boss, is soon betrayed and is then sent to prison. Once freed, he is again betrayed and sentenced to death, only to be saved via Deus ex Machina! In this landmark of 20th Century Theater, morality is turned upside down and traditional opera is satirized, creating a new kind of lyric theater – part social commentary, part musical and part opera – All Entertainment!"
