Sound Samples

Act I: Orchestral Introduction
Red Hook
Hey, Eddie!
Where you goin' all dressed up?
Beatrice! Hurry up
Get used to it, Eddie
But when you're gone
Now listen, both a yiz
Remember Vinnie Bolzano
Eddie was a man
You're on your own now
Marco! Rodolpho!
Then when I am rich
Rodolpho, are you married, too
I sing jazz, too
Eduardo, if you let us sleep here
Now there was a future he must face
It's after eight o'clock
Eddie, when am I gonna be a wife again?
Eddie never knew he had a destiny
Hey Eddie! Wanna go bowling tonight?
Where'd you go?
Aria: "New York Lights" (aka "I love the beauty of the view at home")
Rodolpho, I thought I told you to go in
Arietta: "He's a hit-and-run guy!"
Aria: "Was there ever any fella that he liked for you?"
There's nothing illegal about it
You know where the two of them went?
Whaddyda say, Marco
Eddie, you're pretty strong
Act II: Orchestral Introduction
Hey guys! It's whisky!
Rodolpho! Didn't they hire you?
It's true
Aria: "But you do not know this man"
Somehow, somehow
Aria: "On December twenty-seventh I saw him next"
He won't leave!
Where are they?
Eddie has something to say, Katie
Bea, could I take two pillows up?
That man! I accuse that man!
Aria: "To America I sailed on a ship called Hunger"
Orchestral Interlude
For the sake of my sister
Marco's coming, Eddie
Come, Catherine
Eddie, listen to me!
Eddie Carbone!
Eyes like tunnels
When the tide is right
