Candide

$20-$160.50

Bernstein's comic operetta Candide is based on Voltaire's satirical novella of the same name and follows the naïve Candide as he strives to maintain his optimism while trying to make sense of a chaotic and ruthless world. The score sparkles with some of Bernstein's greatest music for the stage, including Cunegonde's show-stopping "Glitter and Be Gay," the politically charged "Auto-da-fe" scene and the powerful anthem of perseverance "Make Our Garden Grow."

Schedule

Running Time: Two hours and 5 minutes, with one intermission

As part of an effort to incorporate more opera into their mainstage programming, the Baumgartner Studio Artist Showcase will open with Leonard Bernstein's 45-minute opera Trouble in Tahiti. Bernstein began working on this piece on his honeymoon, and many consider it autobiographical, to an extent. This American gem incorporates Bernstein's quintessential jazzy idioms and a plot that runs the gamut from sneaking out of a kid's concert to see a movie and some 'Mad Men' era shenanigans at the office. A vocal trio singing of idyllic middle-class life in 1950s suburbia evokes radio commercials of the era. Throughout the 45-minute opera, the Trio functions as a contemporary Greek chorus, providing satirical commentary to the drama.
