Product Description:

Recorded live with the San Francisco Opera, this is Andre Previn's first opera, and for it he used the story of the classic play A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE. Previn has captured all the claustrophobic tension, volatile emotion, and sexual undertow of Williams's original in his own STREETCAR.

Description by Image Entertainment:

Recorded live with the San Francisco Opera, the world premiere production of Andre Previn's "A Streetcar Named Desire." For his first-ever opera, Previn turned to one of the most celebrated plays in the history of American theater, Tennessee Williams' Pulitzer Prize-winning "A Streetcar Named Desire." He saw the haunting story of lost youth and innocence in the romantic, shadowy world of New Orleans as ideal material. Collaborating with librettist Philip Littell, Previn has captured all the claustrophobic tension, volatile emotion and sexual undertow of Williams' original in his own "Streetcar." This world premiere recording took place in September 1998 at the spectacularly renovated War Memorial Opera House, with Previn conducting. The cast includes Renee Fleming as Blanche DuBois, Rodney Gilfry as Stanley Kowalski, Elizabeth Futral as Stella Kowalski, and Anthony Dean Griffey as Mitch. Nominated for a 1999 Emmy Award.
