NYU Steinhardt to Feature "the Telephone" and "Trouble in Tahiti" in Vocal Music Double Bill, Feb. 5-8

January 15, 2009
N-231, 2008-09

The Program in Vocal Performance at New York University will present two one-act operas in a double bill, Menotti’s The Telephone and Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti. The production runs February 5 through 7 at 8 p.m. and February 8 at 3 p.m. in the Frederick Loewe Theatre, 35 West 4th Street. Tickets are $20 general admission and $5 for students and seniors. For tickets, the public can call 212.868.4444 or visit www.smarttix.com.

The Telephone is an English-language comic opera in one act by Gian Carlo Menotti. It tells the tale of an ardent suitor and his chatterbox girlfriend, who foils any and all attempts at a marriage proposal by becoming involved in a lengthy phone conversation at the crucial moment.

Trouble in Tahiti (composed by Leonard Bernstein) tells the story of Sam and Dinah, a couple who are locked not only in their own imperfect marriage, but are also imprisoned by the friction of postwar suburban bliss.

NYU’s production will be directed by Dianna Heldman, with music direction by Grant Wenaus. The cast and orchestra will feature the talented undergraduate and graduate students from NYU Steinhardt’s Department of Music and Performing Arts Professions.

For more information, please call the Steinhardt School Box Office at 212.998.5281.

Press interested in attending The Telephone and Trouble in Tahiti should contact the Production Office at 212.998.5069.
