As Begbick in Mahagonny

One is astonished, when in this concept where the figures are curiously colorless and without thorough character study, to find one exception, the Widow Begbick. Margaret Thompson sang her as a thrilling and demonic woman. She was the "money counter" and manager and from her personage, she left the poor swindlers Trinity Moses and Fatty the bookkeeper 'in the dark.'

Margaret Thompson as Leocadia Begbick bestowed upon us skillfully all her radiance and her warm, fresh sounding, dramatic mezzosoprano quality.
