To begin its spring season, Michigan Opera Theatre will produce the company's premiere of William Bolcom's A View from the Bridge. In this adaptation of Arthur Miller's play of the same name, Eddie, a working class Italian-American, is troubled by his taboo feelings toward his niece, Catherine. Set in 1950s Brooklyn, the score includes elements of traditional opera, jazz, blues, and even rock 'n' roll, as Eddie's inability to deal with his emotions leads to disastrous results, both for him and his community. In English with English supertitle translations. Performances April 5, 9, 11-13, 2014.
