I did not care for the music of Trouble in Tahiti; however the singers/actors were teriffic and I am looking forward to the Pacific Opera events coming up in September. The Pacific Opera company does a great job. I loved the preview they did of West Side Story prior to the performance of Trouble in Tahiti. What fun.
Quotes & Highlights
See cast bios at the Pacific Opera Project website.
Pacific Opera Project presents a drama straight from the ‘50s by the composer of _West Side Story. Trouble in Tahiti _presents a day in the life of Sam and Dinah, an everycouple who live in a little white house in Anytown, USA. Their seemingly wonderful life — real solid silver, wine in the soup, two-door sedan and convertible coupe — hides the real truth of Sam’s egomania, Dinah’s depression, and the seething contempt in their relationship. there’s lots of “trouble” and a little “Tahiti.” Bernstein, who wrote the lyrics and the music, masterfully weaves a score filled with both laughter and heartfelt emotion.
Experience fabulous costumes, dancing, and an intimate cast of five incredibly talented artists. A pre-show revue of Bernstein’s most popular Broadway melodies will get each performance started before the main act.
