The Maryland Opera Studio presents Weill's Street Scene, a work that brilliantly combines elements of opera and musical theater and that is widely acknowledged as one of the composer's masterpieces. Set in a crowded tenement in 1920s New York City, the opera portrays life among a diverse group of working-class immigrants and the climactic events of one sweltering summer day. Based on a story by Elmer Rice with lyrics by Langston Hughes, Street Scene addresses social justice issues, immigration, race and the complexity of human relationships. 
Sung in English with supertitles.
This event is part of the Kurt Weill Festival funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York NY.
