Like his operas and music theater pieces, Marc Blitzstein is more honored in memory than in performance. But without performances, creative artists -- no matter how important and influential -- begin an irreversible slide from obscurity into oblivion.That's one reason to applaud the Baltimore Opera Company's terrific production at the Gordon Center of Blitzstein's "Regina," his 1949 operatic setting of Lillian Hellman's ferocious play, "The Little Foxes." Blitzstein (1905-1964) was one of the most remarkable voices in the history of American musical theater and "Regina" displays easy familiarity with Stravinskyan neo-classicism and Schoenbergian serialism, as well as popular forms, such as Negro spirituals, the blues, jazz and sentimental commercial ballads.
