The Ballad of John Latouche

Oxford University Press

One of Latouche’s masterpieces, the opera The Golden Apple, with composer Jerome Moross, reimagines the Judgment of Paris story and the Homeric epics through the prism of early-twentieth-century America. Hanya Holm directed, and William and Jean Eckart did the memorable designs. First premiering at the Phoenix Theatre off-Broadway, it moved to Broadway for a short run there. Although more a critical than a popular sucess—it won the Donaldson Award, the Page One Award, and the New York Critics’ Circle Award for the season’s best musical—it remains a favorite among connoisseurs of American musical theater.
