FROM WEST SIDE STORY TO A QUIET PLACE

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Who can’t sing along to the familiar tunes of West Side Story? Written in 1957 by Leonard Bernstein, this American musical drew its inspiration from Shakespeare’s tragic Romeo and Juliet. In stark contrast, the opera A Quiet Place, penned by the composer 27 years later, addresses with extraordinary sensitivity the complexity of family ties after the death of a loved one. A deeply human work of unsettling honesty that will take your breath away.
