While The Beggar's Opera lampoons famous figures of the day it also deals with social inequity by contrasting the low-class thieves and whores with their aristocratic and bourgeois "betters". The Beggar's Opera influenced later British stage comedies and comic opera, for example Gilbert and Sullivan, and is the ancestor of the modern musical. In 1920 The Beggar's Opera began a amazing run of 1,463 performances.
Wealthy and widowed, Lizzie Eustace comes into possession of a very valuable heirloom necklace, the Eustace Diamonds. But Lizzie also possesses a penchant for lying. When the strongbox in which the diamonds are usually kept is stolen, Lizzie becomes the subject of much gossip and scandal. Eventually, a mystery is unravelled and the police discover much more than they initially expected. The truth is not always what it appears to be. First published in 1872, The Eustace Diamonds is the third in Trollope's "Palliser" series.
