About the Production
Street Scene is a gritty portrayal of life in the cultural melting pot of thirties New York as the inhabitants of the street struggle to make their dreams come true. Just as in life, often itís funny, sometimes itís sad... but in the hands of Kurt Weill, (best known for The Threepenny Opera), Street Scene weaves all together into a kaleidoscope of colour, emotion and music.
With Jazzy upbeat numbers, big ensemble pieces, cheeky kidsí chorus and soulful laments, all aspects of life are brilliantly depicted.
Should Street Scene be described as an opera or a musical ? Like those other American cultural icons, Porgy and Bess or West Side Story, we think itís a fusion of the two, but there is only one way for you to be sure... take this rare opportunity to come and see this fully staged production with full orchestra for yourself.
