JAY Records present here the complete recording of The English National Opera’s production of Kurt Weill’s powerful modern masterpiece, STREET SCENE. Since it was unveiled at the London Coliseum in October 1989, this magnificent production has attained unprecedented acclaim.

Based on Elmer Rice’s 1929 stage play, STREET SCENE is an intimate family tragedy set in a poor section of Manhattan. It is an ideal work for the Dolby Surround medium which has been used here to it’s finest advantage. The unfolding human drama is set against the sound of the big city, which are hauntingly present during dialogue on the surround channel of this recording.

Kristine Ciesinski and Richard Van Allen lead a strong cast which includes Janis Kelley, Bonaventura Bottone and Catherine Zeta Jones, who has since become a star in both film and television. The ENO Orchestra are conducted by Carl Davis.

This is the very first complete Original Cast Recording of Weill’s opus. Produced by John Yap and Engineered by John Kurlander, JAY Records’ STREET SCENE includes the entire score and dialogue appears on double CD sets only.
