Rob Kapilow/Jessica Rivera
Sanders Theatre, Cambridge, MA, United States

With music from Bernstein's early production Wonderful Town (1946) to Bernstein's landmark musical West Side Story (1957), and a few familiar Broadway favorites of the time, Kapilow and the brilliant young soprano, Jessica Rivera, explore the brilliant songwriting of this American master. Presented by Celebrity Series of Boston.

07:30 pm
A Quiet Place
Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Philadelphia, PA, United States

Bernstein called A Quiet Place “unlike any work I have ever written or seen.” The opera 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. The chamber adaptation by Garth Edwin Sunderland receives its American premiere from the Curtis Opera Theatre, in a production by director Daniel Fish. Corrado Rovaris, Opera Philadelphia’s Jack Mulroney Music Director, leads members of the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in Bernstein’s dramatic music—by turns explosive, elegiac, and playful—given a more intimate scale in Sunderland’s orchestration. Curtis Opera Theatre at the Perelman in partnership with Opera Philadelphia and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts.
