"Laurence Olivier shows plenty of swagger..."

Product Description:

An exuberant production of a historical adaptation of John Gay's ballad opera which brings to life the corruption, lust and greed of lowlife London. Originally produced for television, this satirical comedy concerning London bums and lowlifes stars serious acclaimed actor Bob Hoskins (of WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT' and FELICIA's JOURNEY) and The Who front man turned rock opera guru Roger Daltrey.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Created especially for television, this version of John Gay's "The Beggar's Opera" captures the quality and satiric edge of the Hogarth engravings which influenced Gay's original version. The characters of this highly-spirited comedy of London's lowlife thrive on thieving, lechery and deceit. Starring Bob Hoskins and Roger Daltrey of The Who, "The Beggar's Opera" is one of the great seminal works of British musical theater and has achieved staggering success continuously since its first performance in 1728.
