Opera | Fall Opera at the Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall

Friday, 05 December, 2014


     SFCM's Opera Program does a double-take on the American dream with an operatic double bill. Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti is an alternately catchy and cutting critique of American suburbia with a score that surveys vocal jazz, Broadway and classical styles. It's paired with another one-act piece, The Money Tree by SFCM faculty composer David Garner '79, a lighthearted and lyrical take on an improbable turnaround in the fortunes of struggling couple. Performances are Friday, December 5 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 7 at 2 p.m. Admission is free.
