PSU Opera: Street Scene


Love, passion, greed, death ...and ice cream.

They're all happening in Street Scene, PSU's latest annual opera, opening April 23.

This modern classic by Kurt Weil is filled with soaring melodies, colorful jazz idioms, and Broadway-style dance numbers. Street Scene portrays everyday life in 1946 Manhattan – the squabbles, the gossip, the tensions – all building to a tragedy of epic proportions.

It's also the first PSU opera in the newly renovated Lincoln Performance Hall. Don't miss it!
