The College of Performing Arts at The New School presents a Mannes Opera production of Kurt Weill’s STREET SCENE

May 3, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

A picture of a building with the writing of Mannes Opera presents Street Scene

Considered by Weill himself to be an “American opera” – a synthesis of European opera and American musical theater – Street Scene combines a rigorous operatic style with a distinctively American story. As a meditation on how communities shift and tear as they accommodate new worldviews, it’s a remarkably modern and prescient piece – sometimes painfully so.  Set against our home, New York City, and with a cast that embraces diversity, difference, immigration, and identity, it is impossible to experience Street Scene without seeing ourselves in the characters, with all of their glorious triumphs, hidden desires, and learned prejudices.
