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.
