TROUBLE In TAHITI – NOTICE EXPIRES MAR. 11 - Columbia University MFA Theatre is seeking opera singers for a Columbia University MFA production of Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti directed by second-year Rebecca Miller Kratzer. Using an intimate space, this production will question cycles of repression and erosion in relationships. While embracing the whimsical, playfulness of the music, we will dig into questions of human connection and why we so often deny ourselves that which we most need. Sung in English, piano/vocal accompaniment. This production is part of the graduation requirements for MFA Directing candidates. This production will be under the supervision of Anne Bogart (SITI Company) and Brian Kulick (CSC). Synopsis: Considered a light-hearted but pointed satire of 1950s suburban sophistication and marital discontent, the work concerns the "path to divorce" followed by a housewife and her commuting husband. Dinah and Sam, both in their thirties, shatter the opening trio's mood of romantic bliss with their domestic quarreling. They have grown apart after ten years of marriage. Sam gets the escape and understanding he needs from his office and gym while Dinah's trips to the psychiatrist and her spending sprees do the same for her. The lack of communication between the two reaches a climax when they both go see a terrible movie, Trouble in Tahiti, a film which Dinah doesn't admit to having seen earlier that day. The Greek chorus (the trio), in the style of radio commercials of the time, extolls the virtues of suburban life. (Synopsis from Opera America https://www.operaamerica.org/applications/nawd/newworks/details.aspx?id=609) Rebecca is the former Artistic Director of the NEMPAC Opera Project in Boston, MA and a current second-year MFA theatre directing student at Columbia. This summer, she will serve as a Directing Fellow at Opera Saratoga. Her work aims to bring the scale and gravitas of opera to theatre, and the intimacy and moment-to-moment truth of theatre to opera, rendering both forms awe-inspiring, relevant, and accessible. Rehearsals begin April 3 (weekday evenings and weekends). Performances are May 8-9 in at Columbia's Studio, Schapiro on W 115th St./Broadway, NYC. Unpaid production under Equity Showcase Code; AEA members will receive transportation reimbursement.
