DePauw Opera presents Street Scene

Music by Kurt Weill
Lyrics by Langston Hughes
Directed by Joachim Schamberger
Music direction by Orcenith Smith

Based on Elmer Rice’s 1929 Pulitzer Prize-winning play and set to music in 1946, Kurt Weill’s “American” opera paints a slice-of-life portrait of the occupants of a Manhattan East Side tenement on two tumultuous summer days in ’46, as they experience despair, passion and laughter through song, showcasing the composer’s varied musical styles — jazz, opera, show tunes and even Gershwin-styled ideas. A reception will be held after the opening night performance.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
