The 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth is celebrated in 2018. The Neue Oper Wien, which is committed to contemporary opera (bringing Péter Eötvös's Lilith to Budapest the last time), presents Bernstein's last work for the stage. Written between 1980-1983, A Quiet Place is a sequel to Trouble in Tahiti, which he created three decades earlier. Both pieces offer an ironic view of the American dream - the one that is pursued not only in America.
The dramaturgy of the production and the arrangement for a chamber ensemble ...is the work of Garth Edwin Sunderland, a Bernstein specialist. This version, which adheres to the spirit of the original but has a slightly different structure, was premiered by the Ensemble Modern in 2013, at the Vienna Konzerthaus, under the baton of Kent Nagano.
An event jointly organized with Neue Oper Wien.
Bernstein's A Quiet Place is performed in Budapest with the permission of Universal Music Publishing Editio Musica, granted on behalf of Boosey & Hawkes Music Publishing Limited.
Co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
The performance is not recommended for audiences under the age of 16.
Presented by: Budapest Spring Festival
