Trouble in Tahiti
BY LEONARD BERNSTEIN
CIVIC CENTER MUSIC HALL
Sam and Dinah may appear to be the picture of 1950s suburban marital bliss in this jazz-influenced opera by the composer of West Side Story, but looks don’t always reveal the whole truth. This poignant tale of the pitfalls of American marriage follows a young couple as they try to revive their sagging relationship. Featuring a vivid score and darkly funny text, Trouble in Tahiti is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
Also accompanying this opera is a staged version of Bernstein’s song cycle Arias and Barcarolles which was his ode to the complexities of love and relationships.
