Trouble In Tahiti
The well-known opera, and perhaps the “darkest” one among L. Bernstein’s musicals, that was first presented in public in 1952, is shown tonight at the Megaro Gyzi, by the opera team “The Medium Project”. Through the play we follow a day in the life of a 1950’s middle-aged, American married couple that ended up living feeling lonely and being unable to communicate effectively with each other. The opera demystifies the so-called “American dream” and the life in the suburbs hidden behind a beautiful frame of a fake idyllic life, sprinkled with superficial family happiness. The couple is accompanied on stage by a vocal trio that refers to a Greek ancient tragedy chorus. The trio comments the events singing with an exaggerated cheerful way reminding of the naive radio commercials of the ‘50s. Start time: 20:00. Admission is free. Phone: + 30 2286023077.
