Kurt Weill's 1947 Broadway musical Street Scene went unproduced in the . after its unsuccessful initial production, and it continued to be largely ignored in Great Britain in subsequent decades, even as it began to gain a footing among American opera companies. Then, curiously, there were two major British productions in the same year, 1989, one undertaken by the Scottish Opera in Glasgow, and the other by the English National Opera in London, and both were recorded.

Street Scene 1989 English National Opera Cast. Two full recordings of Kurt Weill's Street Scene came out within a year of each other, this one and one conducted by John Mauceri for London Records. This one derives from a staged production, Mauceri has the starrier cast, at least on paper. Mauceri does not include the full dialogue, only a bit over half, the most important moments, mostly underscored. There is now also a DVD of a production that originated at Houston Grand Opera for the visual types.

Street Scene is an American opera by Kurt Weill (music), Langston Hughes (lyrics), and Elmer Rice (book). Written in 1946 and premiered in Philadelphia that year, Street Scene is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name by Rice. It was Weill who referred to the piece as an "American opera", intending it as a groundbreaking synthesis of European traditional opera and American musical theater.
