CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti, another example from that great composer of the fusion of popular and operatic musical styles, concerns the domestic life of an archetypal all-American husband and wife. The Jazz Trio spends the opera singing the praises of Suburbia as the new American paradise, but what goes on inside the home is far from perfect. The husband, Sam, has a questionable relationship with his secretary, goes to the gym instead of watching his son's play, would do anything to put off the moment of coming home to his wife. Dinah sees a shrink, is desperately unhappy, and loses herself by going alone to the pictures, to see Trouble in Tahiti - a film which she recognises is ridiculous but at least offers her some form of escape. Sung in English. Playing as part of 'The Little Greats: Short operas with huge emotions' as a double bill on some dates with Osud, Trial by Jury or Cavalleria rusticana.

Performers Quirijn de Lang (Sam), Wallis Giunta (Dinah).
Music Leonard Bernstein (1952). Company Opera North. Conductor Tobas Rngborg. Director Matthew Eberhardt. Design Charles Edwards. Costume Hannah Clark. Lighting Charles Edwards. Director Tim Claydon (movement director).
