A Quiet Place is an American opera in three acts, with music by Leonard Bernstein to a libretto by Stephen Wadsworth. The work is a sequel to Bernstein's earlier short opera Trouble in Tahiti. In its initial form, A Quiet Place was in one act, and followed Trouble in Tahiti after the intermission.

The first performance was on 17 June 1983 by the Houston Grand Opera.

After being panned by critics Bernstein and Wadsworth withdrew the opera and revised it.

The revised version was given at La Scala, Milan and at Washington Opera in 1984.

The work was subsequently performed by the Vienna State Opera under the composer's baton in April 1986 with Jean Kraft as Dinah. These performances were recorded by Deutsche Grammophon for commercial release. The UK premiere was in December 1988 at the Corn Exchange Theatre, Cambridge, with the composer in attendance.
