Trouble at the Opera
Leonard Bernstein’s opera A Quiet Place had its premiere in 1984 at the Scala in Milan. The work centers around a troubled family, that has to come to terms with the loss of a wife and mother and the traumas of the past. We know Bernstein mainly as a conductor and as the composer of West Side Story. Nevertheless, he wrote several opera titles, like Trouble in Tahiti and Candide. In this lecture we will pay attention to Bernstein the composer, Bernstein the conductor and most of all Bernstein the phenomenon!
His opera A Quiet Place will be performed by Opera Zuid on Sunday 9 December. Click here for more information about the Opera Visit.
