A Quiet Place

A Quiet Place
Bernstein’s second and final opera based on a libretto by Stephen Wadsworth.

A Quiet Place tells the story of a contemporary American family struggling to connect, forgive, and accept one another’s differences after the death of a loved one. They all yearn for and remember moments of intimacy, but struggle desperately to achieve it in the present. This is presented musically by repurposing musical and dramatic motifs from Trouble in Tahiti, and though often dark and emotionally searing, A Quiet Place is interspersed with moments of communion, and ultimately ends on a hopeful note with a promise of reconciliation.

Opera Zuid is the only European opera house to stage the final version of this heart wrenching piece in the Bernstein-Centennial year.
