Trouble in Tahiti

TROUBLE IN TAHITI

Friday, January 17, 2025 at 7:30 PM & Sunday, January 19, 2025 at 3 PM
Maryland Hall | 801 Chase Street, Annapolis, MD

Music by Leonard Bernstein
Libretto by Leonard Bernstein
Presented in English with English subtitles.

From Song to Stage—presenting the extraordinary American composer’s writing for the stage, including a full production of his opera, Trouble in Tahiti.

Set against the backdrop of 1950s idealized suburbia, Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti follows the less-than-happy marriage of Sam and Dinah as they navigate the complexities of love, ambition, and societal expectations. In this intoxicating blend of sultry jazz, biting satire, and raw emotion, Bernstein transports audiences to a time when societal pressures clashed with personal desires. From the expressive jazz trio to the haunting portrayal of fractured dreams, Trouble in Tahiti delivers a captivating exploration of the human condition that resonates long after the final note fades into the night.
