Audio Slideshow: A Second Chance for A Quiet Place

Sunday, October 24, 2010

New York City Opera opens its fall season with the New York premiere of A Quiet Place, Leonard Bernstein's opera about an estranged family that is reunited after the death of the mother in a car crash. While reception was decidedly mixed at its Houston premiere in 1983, director Christopher Alden believes the time has come to give the opera a fresh hearing.
