Part of Curtis Opera Theatre at the Perelman, a partnership between the Curtis Institute of Music, Opera Philadelphia, and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts: A Quiet Place revisits the unhappy suburban family from Trouble in Tahiti thirty years later, only to find them reeling in the wake of tragedy. Unhappy memories and long-buried resentments surface, and the survivors have a choice: to hurt one another again—or to heal.
Bernstein’s dramatic music—by turns explosive, elegiac, and playful—is given a more intimate scale in a new chamber adaptation by Garth Edwin Sunderland.
Fully staged production with members of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in English with supertitles.
A Quiet Place is sponsored in part by David and Sandy Marshall, BNP Paribas, and the Allen R. and Judy Brick Freedman Venture Fund for Opera. The Curtis Opera Theatre season is sponsored by the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation and the Wyncote Foundation.
