Act One is the debut album of the Scottish progressive band Beggars Opera. Variously classified as symphonic rock, progressive rock or proto-progressive rock, Beggars Opera's debut album has been compared to and sometimes described as derivative of works by The Nice and Deep Purple MK I. It was published by Vertigo which had at the time introduced its legendary swirl label in 1970 and features cover art by the renowned surrealist photographer and artist Marcus Keef.

The Beggar's Opera is a ballad opera in three acts written in 1728 by John Gay with music arranged by Johann Christoph Pepusch. It is one of the watershed plays in Augustan drama and is the only example of the once thriving genre of satirical ballad opera to remain popular today. Ballad operas were satiric musical plays that used some of the conventions of opera, but without recitative. The lyrics of the airs in the piece are set to popular broadsheet ballads, opera arias, church hymns and folk tunes.
