You love the movie — you love the play — now, experience the OPERA!
Opera Roanoke’s 44th Season culminates in the Roanoke debut of Andre Previn’s masterpiece, A Streetcar Named Desire. Based on the play by Tennessee Williams, Previn’s supremely evocative score lends rapturous music, exuding the decay and languor of the Old South, to a timeless piece of modern theatre.
Amy Cofield returns to the Opera Roanoke stage in the lead role of Blanche DuBois, alongside Andrew Wilkowskeas the brutal brother-in-law Stanley Kowalski — the role made famous by Marlon Brando… “Stellaaaaa!!”
This new production is designed by Tlaloc Lopez-Watermann and directed by Crystal Manich.
