The wonderful jazz standard Mack the Knife began life as a song from the the musical play The Threepenny Opera - which is not actually an opera despite its title. It's actually an early example of what we know now as musical theatre, which developed around the end of the 19th century out of the light comic operettas such as those of Gilbert and Sullivan and their contemporaries.
