A Streetcar Named Desire

In A Streetcar Named Desire, André Previn transforms Tennessee Williams’s immortal drama of sexual tension and cultural adversity into a beautifully melodic opera. The opera tells the story of Blanche DuBois, a wilting Southern belle who travels to New Orleans to live with her sister Stella, only to tragically clash with her brutish husband Stanley and his animalistic lifestyle. In denial of her tumultuous past, Blanche clings to a fallen antebellum world while losing touch with reality, conveyed by the powerful voices of Jill Gardner (Blanche) and Ryan McKinny (Stanley).

Hawaii Opera Theatre

Hawaii Opera Theatre was established in 1960, but the islands' connection to opera dates back nearly a century earlier. In the 1850s, Queen Emma was said to have sung Verdi, while her husband King Kamehameha IV acted as a stage manager. More recently, Queen Liliuokalani may have composed an opera herself. Today, the nonprofit Hawaii Opera Theatre continues this rich musical tradition as the only professional opera company on the islands. Its productions—which have included La Bohéme, Romeo & Juliet, and Aida—feature local singers alongside international stars who have performed at major opera houses and in front of their own framed portraits of Pavarotti.
