Audience Reviews for Beggar's Opera

THE BEGGAR'S OPERA O.K. However, the performance speeds along at such a fast pace that it is difficult to follow without the libretto in hand. As for the singing, opera is a bit of a departure for The Who rocker, Roger Daltrey. Otherwise, the singing was decent. It's a good question why the producers of the film version decided to change the ending of the piece-I don't know why. The original play was a comedy that wrapped up on a high note rather than a tragedy which seems unsatisfactory.
