Bernstein: Trouble in Tahiti [DVD]

Notes & Reviews:

Tom Cairn's cinematic film made in 2001, presents Bernstein's short opera set in 1950s America with dramatic direction and wonderful sets. Bernstein's satire on American suburban married life stars Stephanie Novacek as Dinah and Karl Daymond as Sam facing a serious marital breakdown. Inspired by jazz and American musical comedy, the score is a path-breaking fusion of lyric art with popular entertainment.
