In Steeltown, USA, everything and everyone can be bought—at least that’s what Mr. Mister thinks. “The Cradle Will Rock” is a 1937 opera by Mark Blitzstein that was shut down on its opening night. Opera Saratoga performs the original orchestration (a first in nearly sixty years) as part of this year’s Festival. John Mauceri, the famed writer, educator, conductor, arranger and founding director of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra will conduct “The Cradle Will Rock.” He stopped by to talk about the work along with Opera Saratoga’s artistic director Lawrence Edelson.
