The ‘30s were extraordinary years on Broadway, where jazz, classical and popular music intertwined to create some of the most memorable and beloved shows of the 20th century – as well as some fascinating musicals that have been lost to time, but deserve to be better known. Gershwin’s Girl CrazyOf Thee I Sing, and Porgy and Bess; Cole Porter’s Gay DivorceNymph ErrantAnything Goes and Red, Hot and Blue; Rodgers’s JumboOn Your ToesBabes in Arms, and The Boys from Syracuse, Weill’s Johnny Johnson and Knickerbocker Holiday; and of course, Blitzstein’s The Cradle Will Rock, were all products of this incredible decade on the Great White Way. Members of Opera Saratoga’s acclaimed Young Artist Program will be featured in this evening of music that defined a decade and forever changed the course of American musical theater and opera.
