When most people go to the opera, they imagine they're going to be watching a production with dialogue in a European language
and large women filling the rafters with voluminous noise. But A Quiet Place is a uniquely American take on the opera. Written
by Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Wadsworth, it's a story that will stick in your mind forever - as will its fabulous music.
A Quiet Place is essentially a sequel of sorts to an earlier operatic experiment by Bernstein and Wadsworth called Trouble
in Tahiti. Opera tickets to A Quiet Place will let you see the
fate of Dinah and Sam, a couple whose marriage is eroding as they grow older, and who are facing larger, possibly irreparable
rifts between them and their children.
Family life isn't easy. You grow up thinking that one day you'll marry, raise a couple of kids and live happily ever after
- but it's far from the truth. Life is a lot harder than that, and A Quiet Place is about that uncomfortable discovery. Get
theater tickets for this opera while you still can.
