    Students enrolled in Georgia Southern University’s Opera Workshop will perform excerpts from “Street Scene,” Tuesday, Oct. 3, at 7:30 p.m. in the Emma Kelly Theater of the Averitt Center for the Arts. “Street Scene” is a jazz-based American masterpiece crafted by composer Kurt Weill. Sarah Hancock will narrate the evening’s performance.
    Weill’s “Broadway opera” includes a rich variety of characters that populate a New York City tenement block in the 1930s. The show, based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Elmer Rice of the same name, is the simple story of everyday life in a big city — a story of love, passion, greed, and death. Weill created the piece to be a synthesis of traditional European opera and American musical theater.
    Tickets are available at the door. Admission is $5 for adults and $2 for students.
