Fall in Central City
In honor of Leonard Bernstein's birthday (Aug 25, 1918), here's a clip of his one-act jazz opera TROUBLE IN TAHITI. youtube.com/watch?v=CThlbt…
"We just loved it [Central City Opera], and my mother said one day, if she ever could, she’d like to see every performance. And so, in ’86 it worked out that we could and I’ve just continued. She died in 2005 and I just continued because I know that that’s what she would want. It just seems like it’s an unbelievable life that I can do to all of these things I want to do. I just love to do everything—watch everything, see how it’s all done. I think some of my friends wonder about me.” Jeanne Richards, faithful Central City Opera Patron since 1953
Happy Birthday to Central City Opera's Artistic Director Emeritus, John Moriarty!
