A Streetcar Named Desire
Libretto by Philip Littell
First performed: September 19, 1998, San Francisco Opera
Florida Grand Opera Company Premiere

“Stella!”… The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the title A Streetcar Named Desire. However, rest assured that André Previn’s operatic adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ famous play will leave with you with so much more. The opera follows the downward spiral of former southern belle Blanche Dubois, who after having experienced a series of personal losses, leaves behind her wealth and privilege and moves into a run-down apartment with her sister and brother-in-law. Filled with soaring melodies and an orchestral score that puts you right in the middle of New Orleans during a hot summer, A Streetcar Named Desire is a contemporary verismo masterpiece.
