The award-winning University of Memphis Opera at the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music will present Leonard Bernstein's Trouble in Tahiti and Dominick Argento's Miss Havisham's Wedding Night on April 25 at 7:30 pm and 27, at 3:00 pm. In Trouble in Tahiti, during the ten years Sam and Dinah have been living in suburban Anywhere, USA, they have drifted apart, wondering where the person they married went and who is the person sitting across the breakfast table.  Then, literature's famous Miss Havisham stops time, literally, to hold onto an image of the man who duped her by leaving her at the altar.
