As part of an effort to incorporate more opera into their mainstage programming, the Baumgartner Studio Artist Showcase will open with Leonard Bernstein's 45-minute opera Trouble in Tahiti. Bernstein began working on this piece on his honeymoon, and many consider it autobiographical, to an extent. This American gem incorporates Bernstein's quintessential jazzy idioms and a plot that runs the gamut from sneaking out of a kid's concert to see a movie and some 'Mad Men' era shenanigans at the office. A vocal trio singing of idyllic middle-class life in 1950s suburbia evokes radio commercials of the era. Throughout the 45-minute opera, the Trio functions as a contemporary Greek chorus, providing satirical commentary to the drama.
