The Convict's Opera, Paperback / softback Book

The Convict's Opera Paperback / softback


On board a convict ship to Australia, the prisoners stage their own version of John Gay's 18th-century romp-with-songs, "The Beggar's Opera", finding it easy to identify with the villainous but charming hero, Macheath, whose repeated brushes with the law serve only to interrupt his compulsive womanizing.
