Based on Elmer Rice’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, Street Scene is a stirring synthesis of European traditional opera and American musical theatre. A simple story of love, greed and death portrays life in a tenement house between one evening and the next, bringing to life a wide range of multi-ethnic characters. Kurt Weill’s Tony Award-winning music is considered by many critics to be his masterpiece. Sung in English with supertitles.
This production is dedicated to the memory of Malcolm Fraser (1939-2012), former J. Ralph Corbett Distinguished Chair in Opera at CCM.
