The picture-perfect home; the beautiful, young couple; the creeping sense of emptiness and disillusionment. Leonard Bernstein plumbed the darker side of post-World War II suburban paradise with wit and irony in his masterful one-act opera, Trouble in Tahiti. Nicholas Alexander Brown, musicologist and conductor, leads a discussion on Bernstein’s interpretation of the ever-evolving American Dream – a myth powerful in both the Maestro’s personal life and his works – while artists from BLO share selections from throughout Bernstein’s canon.
