Leonard Bernstein originally wrote his operetta Trouble in Tahiti - a protracted satirical commentary on the vapidness of American middle-class materialism - in 1951, as an attempt to combine lyric poetry, pop culture, and social commentary. The operetta incorporates seven scenes and unfolds against an animated suburban backdrop. Bernstein revived the production in 1973, starring Nancy Williams, Julian Patrick and Antonia Butler; the film of that revival comes to video in this new home release, entitled Leonard Bernstein: Trouble in Tahiti. Bernstein himself conducts, leading the London Symphonic Wind Band.
