BERNSTEIN, L.: Trouble in Tahiti (PAL/NTSC)




BERNSTEIN, L.: Trouble in Tahiti (PAL/NTSC)

Tom Cairns' cinematic film features a young and vibrant cast in Bernstein's chamber opera, set in the fifties. This biting satire on American suburban married life stars Stephanie Novacek as Dinah and Karl Daymond as Sam, facing a serious communication breakdown -- he is obsessed with his work; she seeks escapism via the magical world of the latest movie release, Trouble in Tahiti. Inspired by jazz and American musical comedy, the score is a path-breaking fusion of lyric art with popular entertainment.

Winner at the Vienna TV Awards, April 2002. The jury citation - "We were impressed by the originality and the style using archive footage intercut with the story. Great camera work and imaginative sets."

SPECIAL FEATURES: Introduction to "Trouble in Tahiti"; "Not Particularly Romantic" an interview with Humphrey Burton, Leonard Bernstein's biographer; Interview with conductor Paul Daniel, Illustrated booklet with biographies in English, French and German.
