Best-known for his collaboration with Bertolt Brecht on The Threepenny Opera, Kurt Weill is one of the most innovative and influential theater composers of the twentieth century. In Street Scene, he mixes show tunes, jazz, arias, folk songs and spirituals to portray the passions and frustrations of a multi-ethnic New York City tenement block during two brutally hot days in the Depression era. With lyrics by the great Harlem Renaissance poet, novelist and playwright Langston Hughes, and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Elmer Rice, Street Scene is an important, vital work that builds to an explosive conclusion.
