Join PSU Opera and Orchestra for Kurt Weill’s Street Scene this Spring! With it’s huge cast, this highly theatrical opera has something for everyone, soaring melodic lines, colorful American jazz idioms and Broadway style dance numbers. It is a story of love, passion, greed and death that all takes place in front of a tenement building in 1946 Manhattan. The plot follows the romance between Rose Maurrant and her neighbor Sam Kaplan; and the extramarital affair of Rose's mother, Anna, which is eventually discovered by her husband. It portrays everyday life, the ordinary squabbles and gossip of the neighbors as tensions mount building into a tragedy of epic proportions!
