Kurt Weill's Street Scene

4 - 11 Sept

Past Event
Kurt Weill's Street Scene

Set on the East Side of Manhattan in sweltering 1940’s New York, Kurt Weill's opera centres around residents of tenement buildings over a 24 hour span.

Directed by Michael Gow
Conducted by Johannes Fritzsch

Enjoy an exceptional performance from the students of Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University.

Street Scene by Kurt Weill is a groundbreaking synthesis of traditional opera and musical theatre, which received a Tony Award for Best Original Score. 

Set on the East Side of Manhattan in sweltering 1940’s New York, the tale centres around residents of tenement buildings over a 24-hour span. Neighbourly gossip, a romance, and a torrid affair escalate tensions to a tragic end.

Incorporating jazz and blues influences alongside Puccini and Broadway style numbers, this is a great introduction to opera.
