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 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.
