Trouble in Tahiti
Composer: Leonard Bernstein

Librettist: Leonard Bernstein, Langston Hughes
Synopsis
Considered a light-hearted but pointed satire of 1950s suburban sophistication and marital discontent, the work concerns the "path to divorce" followed by a housewife and her commuting husband. Dinah and Sam, both in their thirties, shatter the opening trio's mood of romantic bliss with their domestic quarreling. They have grown apart after ten years of marriage. Sam gets the escape and understanding he needs from his office and gym while Dinah's trips to the psychiatrist and her spending sprees do the same for her. The lack of communication between the two reaches a climax when they both go see a terrible movie, Trouble in Tahiti, a film which Dinah doesn't admit to having seen earlier that day. The Greek chorus (the trio), in the style of radio commercials of the time, extolls the virtues of suburban life.
