Official Description

With a little white house in the suburbs, Sam and Dinah are the perfect picture of a young couple in the 1950s – and they are both desperately unhappy. A clever and cutting libretto matched with a jazz-infused score, Tahiti delivers a candid and profound portrait of a couple longing for love and intimacy amidst the American dream.

In an evening celebrating the work of Leonard Bernstein, Trouble in Tahiti will be performed with Arias & Barcarolles, a poignant rumination on marriage, life and the nature of love.
