On 16 February, at 8pm, Mezzo Live HD will broadcast Street Scene, by Kurt Weill, live from the Teatro Real.


The premiere at the Teatro Real of Street Scene, by Kurt Weill, will be one of the important events of this season. With the libretto by Elmer Rice, based on a story by the same name (Pulitzer Prize-winning play 1929), and the song lyrics by Langston HugheStreet Scene narrates a series of anonymous lives in a big city from a brutally realistic viewpoint.

This was Weill’s first opera composed during his American exile years and he referred to it as an “American opera”; in it, the Broadway musical, North American jazz and European traditional opera converge.
