Shepherd School Opera with the Shepherd School Chamber Orchestra presents Kurt Weill’s Street Scene.

It’s a typical, scorching summer day outside a New York City tenement – neighbors gossip and go about their business as usual – but inside, tensions are escalating. When a shocking secret is revealed, the tension explodes into violence.

Featuring music by Kurt Weill and lyrics by Langston Hughes, Street Scene won the 1947 Tony Award for Best Original Score, blending European opera and American musical theater.

Steven Osgood will be the Guest Conductor and Pat Diamond will be the Stage Director.
