Virginia Opera is excited to debut a fully-staged production of Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti. Trouble in Tahiti, a one-act opera set in 1950s suburbia, follows a young married couple struggling to prioritize their relationship amidst the laundry list of demands in their daily lives. Audiences will love this infectiously jazzy 45-minute portrait of “domestic bliss” and find a glimmer of hope in its candid conclusion. Approximate Runtime: 45 minutes
Performance on May 1 will be presented in Richmond at Dogwood Dell featuring members of the Richmond Symphony Orchestra.
Performances on May 7 and 8 will be presented in partnership with the Virginia Arts Festival in Norfolk at the VAF Bank Street Stage featuring members of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
