In a capstone to our Leonard Bernstein centenary celebration, we present his quirky, complex, irreverent, and very humorous operetta Candide, with orchestral staging.
2019-20 SEASON ON SALE NOW
Yannick Nézet-Séguin’s eighth season as music director takes us on a journey from Beethoven to some of the most exciting new voices of our day. We invite you to join us!
In this blog post, I’d like to tell how my team of creative lighting and special effects designers and I will try to compliment, not compete with, the artistic magnificence of the Disney movie Fantasia, excerpts from which Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra will accompany live during the Stokowski Celebration Family Concert on June 23.
I don’t believe you can gild a lily, but you can display it in a magnificent vase! Here our lily is, of course, the superlative Disney movie Fantasia, and our vase is the Academy of Music’s gilded interior in all its splendor.
Adding LIVE aural fragrance to this exquisite bouquet will be the world-renowned Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick!
Join us on Saturday morning, June 23, at 11.30 AM—and bring the family!
