Synopsis

When a cyclone blows little Dorothy Gale out of Kansas and into the magical world of Oz, she must journey to meet the great Wizard in hopes of going home.

Trivia & History

This version was commissioned by the St. Louis Municipal Opera House in 1942.  The score is mostly written by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg however, the song "Evening Star," the musical interlude for the tornado as well as any specialty material was not written by them.  "Evening Star" was written by Mitchell Parish and Peter DeRose.  Frequently, however, Baum and Tjeitins are credited with the score and occasionally the book, even though nothing from the early version is retained.
