Opera vs. Operetta vs. Musical Theatre



Is /The Threepenny Opera/ an opera or an operetta, or is it musical theatre?
Why?
Is /The Beggar's Opera/ an opera or an operetta, or is it musical theatre?
Why?

In most programs used to read and write to Usenet newsgroups, when a person
clicks on "Reply," he is presented with the original message, under which he
can write his reply. Google uses a "Reply" button which, when clicked on,
leads to a blank form. In order to post a reply in the ordinary format used
for Usenet messages, it is necessary to take an extra step, first clicking
on "Show options" and *then* clicking on "Reply."
