Virginia Opera’s third installment in their 2013 American series, A Streetcar Named Desire, an opera in three acts premiered at George Mason University’s Center for the Arts on Friday, March 1, 2013 at 8:00 pm. Originally written in 1947 by American playwright Thomas “Tennessee” Williams, who received the 1948 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Streetcar was finally presented as an opera by first-class composer André Previn and premiered at the San Francisco Opera in 1998.
The Virginia Opera once again takes a daring move, bringing its company and Fairfax County premiere production of André Previn’s “A Streetcar Named Desire” to George Mason University’s Center for the Arts tomorrow, March 1, 2013 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, March 3, 2013 at 2 p.m. Previn’s nearly new opera, premiered by the San Francisco Opera in 1998, adds a modernist score to Tennessee Williams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning 1947 play re-creating the playwright’s famously brutal almost-love story for the musical stage.
Virginia Opera's production of Andre Previn's "A Streetcar Named Desire" arrives at George Mason University's Center for the Arts this week. This third installment in the company's American opera cycle is based on Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning play set in New Orleans during the 1940s.
