Opera North's 2017 production of Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti (performed as part of the Little Greats season, see my review) is now available on-line as part of the celebrations for the centenary of Bernstein's birth.

Commissioned by The Space, the production was filmed live at Leeds Grand Theatre last year and directed by Ross MacGibbon. Starring as disaffected couple Dinah and Sam are Wallis Giunta, Canadian mezzo-soprano and winner of the Young Singer Award at the 2018 International Opera Awards, and Dutch baritone Quirijn de Lang who most recently took the lead role of Fred Graham/ Petruchio in Cole Porter's Kiss Me, Kate (see my review).

Trouble in Tahiti is available on YouTube and there are additional accessible versions on the Opera North website.
