Mozart's Attic Thursday Sept 9th at 10 pm

Aug 6, 2018

At one point in the 1940s, Leonard Bernstein became convinced that the future of American music was in the theater: that opera -- especially light opera -- was a close cousin to musical comedy, and that ballet scores, and even film scores, were more in keeping with our national tradition than the increasingly avant-garde music that was being written for the concert hall. We'll look at Bernstein onstage this week on Mozart's Attic as we continue to celebrate the centennial of his birth this month.
