Candide

A One-Night-Only Benefit Concert
In Celebration of the Bernstein Centennial

Wednesday, April 18 at 7 PM
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage

Bernstein’s Candide, based on Voltaire’s satirical tale, is a superb fusion of Broadway flash and operatic virtuosity. Its quicksilver overture, dazzling coloratura soprano aria “Glitter and Be Gay,” sardonic “Auto-da-fé” chorus, and deeply moving “Make Our Garden Grow” finale are highlights of an ebullient and irresistible work. Performed in concert by first-rate guest artists and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Candide is an ideal celebration of the Bernstein centenary.

For Gala reservations, please contact the Special Events Office at 212-903-9679.

Concert-only single tickets are also available.
