In a capstone to our Leonard Bernstein centenary celebration, we present his quirky, complex, irreverent, and very humorous operetta Candide, with orchestral staging.
Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Steve Martin - Special Guest Artist
James Alexander - Creative Director
Celebrate the lush splendor of the home where The Philadelphia Orchestra first made its sound famous—the glorious “Grand Old Lady of Locust Street”—and then dance the night away. Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the brightest guest stars will dazzle you in a spectacular evening of music and resplendent dining like no other, all staged as Philadelphia’s party of the year.
Proceeds from the Anniversary Concert and Ball benefit the ongoing preservation and restoration of our beloved National Historic Landmark Building—the Academy of Music.
