Event Description:
"Leonard Bernstein's music is lush, lovely, and electric. When it isn't voluptuous as velvet, it is as frostily pretty as a diamond bell. It is easily the best score Mr. Bernstein has written for the theatre." - New York World Telegram and Sun Department of Music and Theatre students, faculty, and alumni present a semi-staged concert version of "Candide" for the 2018-19 Opera Gala. Leonard Bernstein's comedic operetta is based on Voltaire's satire of innocence, optimism, and the unexpected lessons of life. With a book from Hugh Wheeler and lyrical contributions from the incomparable Stephen Sondheim, "Candide" is a masterpiece for the ages. 2018 is the worldwide celebration year of the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein the composer, conductor, educator, musician, cultural ambassador, and humanitarian.
