Tanglewood enters its second week of classical programming with inspiring concerts in the Shed and in Ozawa Hall. As always, excellence is the watchword: from Leonard Bernstein’s delightful and brilliant comic opera "Trouble in Tahiti" to classic symphonic works of Mozart, Schumann, Mendelssohn, Brahms and Wagner; from Bernstein's emotionally uplifting "Chichester Psalms" to a semi-staged performance of Puccini's "La bohème," Tanglewood hits all the high notes.
Thursday, July 12, 8 p.m. in Ozawa Hall: Jamie Bernstein, the composer's daughter, directs a semi-staged performance of Leonard Bernstein's one-act opera "Trouble in Tahiti," featuring conductor Charles Prince, soprano Alexandra Silber as Dinah, and baritone Nathan Gunn as Sam, with soprano Kerstin Anderson; tenor William Ferguson; and baritone Christopher Herbert.
