Leonard Bernstein's one-act opera, "Trouble in Tahiti," has languished since he wrote it in 1952. Opera companies rarely stage it these days. But the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra just commissioned an orchestral suite based on music from "Trouble in Tahiti." We'll hear the world premiere in this weekend's show, from a concert this spring in New York.
