Vous venez encore pour chanter?

Those were the words I was greeted with by the representative of the town hall who had come to give a speech at the start of the performance of "A Threepenny Opera" given by Catrin and her comrades. I just laughed!

They had already presented the opera some months ago in a bar in the centre of Bordeaux, and it had been great then, but now they had a proper theatre with a reasonably sized stage, a good piano that was in tune and no cables lying everywhere.

And it was really very good indeed.  Here's a video of Catrin's song as naive Polly Peachum, tricked into "marrying" Macheath, arch-villain and subject of the song Mack the Knife.
