Pacific Opera Project Revives ‘Trouble In Tahiti’ In Santa Monica This Weekend:

Pacific Opera Project is bringing back its critically acclaimed production of “Trouble in Tahiti” to the Miles Memorial Playhouse in Santa Monica.

Four performances have been slated for the Miles Memorial Playhouse this weekend to ride on successes of the production previously held at the Santa Monica Playhouse.

Pacific Opera Project is Los Angeles’ newest opera company; committed to fully professional productions of worthy masterpieces and daring new works of opera and musical theater produced with artists of the highest caliber in diverse venues.

Bernstein’s “Trouble in Tahiti” with pre-show of Bernstein’s greatest hits of Broadway will be showing this Friday, April 13 at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 14 at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m., and Sunday, April 15 at 3 p.m.

Trouble in Tahiti gives the audience a day in the life of Sam and Dinah, an everyman couple who live in a little white house in Anytown, USA. Their seemingly wonderful life — “Real solid silver, wine in the soup, two-door sedan and convertible coupe” — hides the real truth of Sam’s egomania, Dinah’s depression and the seething contempt in their relationship.

There’s lots of “Trouble” and a little “Tahiti”.

Bernstein, who wrote the lyrics and music, masterfully weaves a score filled with both laughter and heartfelt emotion.

This fun evening of dancing, singing, and theatrics features a talented and intimate cast of five: Jessica Mamey stars as Dinah, Phil Meyer co-stars in the role of Sam and the supporting trio features tenor Robert Norman, soprano Tara Alexander and baritone Ryan Reithmeier.

A pre-show review of Bernstein’s most popular broadway melodies gets things started.

The show runs 75 minutes including pre-show.

Tickets cost between $12.50 and $25, available online at www.pacificoperaproject.com or by calling Pacific Opera Project at 323.739.6122.

Playhouse is located at 1130 Lincoln Boulevard, Santa Monica.
