Miloš Kopecký – Mackie Messer

Now here’s a rare little gem …

“Mack the Knife” or “The Ballad of Mack the Knife”, originally “Die Moritat von Mackie Messer“, is a song composed by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Bertolt Brecht for their music drama Die Dreigroschenoper, or, as it is known in English, The Threepenny Opera. It premiered in Berlin in 1928 at the Theater am Schiffbauerdamm.

Miloš Kopecký (22 August 1922 in Prague – 16 February 1996 in Prague) was a Czech actor, active mainly in the second half of the 20th century.
