Event Details: By André Previn Sung in English with English Supertitles In this famous tale of lust and disgrace, the newly impoverished Blanche Dubois arrives in 1940’s New Orleans to live with her sister and brother-in-law in their shabby apartment. As the weeks press on, dark truths about Blanche’s past collide with the stark reality of the present, leading to a downward spiral of domestic violence, degradation and madness. Andre Previn’s Streetcar is a faithful adaptation of the classic Tennessee Williams play, with a score that evokes the gravity of the story and the lush, bluesy New Orleans atmosphere. Kelly Cae Hogan (Die Walküre, 2011) makes her triumphant return as Blanche DuBois opposite American baritone, David Adam Moore, making his company debut as the menacing and sexy Stanley Kowalski. The second Virginia Opera premiere of the season is helmed by two of operas most in-demand visionaries: Director Sam Helfrich (Orpheé, 2012) and Conductor Ari Pelto.
