For Sunday: “Island Magic,” from Leonard Bernstein’s opera “Trouble in Tahiti”

trouble in tahiti


This is the best scene (I think) from Bernstein’s early opera “Trouble in Tahiti,” in an excellent staging / performance, with Nancy Williams singing the lead.

If you can’t make out the lyrics, you can find them here. They’re hysterical.
