Madrid , 28013

The Teatro Real premiere of Kurt Weill's Street Scene will be one of the most important events of this season. With a libretto by Elmer Rice, based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, and lyrics by Langston Hughe, Street Scene narrates a series of anonymous lives in a big city from a brutally realistic viewpoint. This was Weill’s first opera composed during his American exile years and he referred to it as an “American opera”; in it, the Broadway musical, North American jazz, and European traditional opera converge.

Music - Kurt Weill

Book - Elmer Rice

Lyrics - Langston Hughes
