Bernstein - Candide

Friday, June 21, 2019

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

In a capstone to our Leonard Bernstein centenary celebration, we present his quirky, complex, irreverent, and very humorous operetta Candide, with orchestral staging. First performed in 1956, the work has come into its own in recent decades, thanks to Bernstein's endless musical inventiveness and collaborators from Stephen Sondheim to Dorothy Parker (and of course, Voltaire, who wrote the original story, published in 1759). Yannick's great love for Bernstein's music has shown throughout the centenary and before, starting with the amazing production of MASS in 2015, and continuing through West Side Story and the complete symphonies. With Candide, we bring the celebration of this remarkable musician's life to an altogether fitting, and joyous, conclusion.
