The Bright Lights of Broadway

Before Broadway became “Broadway,” there were European operettas. When these came to New York City, they taught American composers how to write more compelling stage works. Music historian Betsy Schwarm will explore how the European practice of having the music serve the story, rather than the other way around, put Gershwin and Company on a new path. From The Student Prince to Showboat and Girl Crazy, there’s a close connection – even with North American settings!
