Description: What better way to round off the celebrations of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th anniversary year than with his satirical, hilarious, and touching comic operetta, Candide! Produced In collaboration with Utah Opera, an impressive cast of vocalists joined by the Utah Opera Chorus tells the story of a young man’s journey from innocence to worldliness, from Europe to South America, in love and in death, and finally to a life of contentment and peace. Bernstein’s brilliant score includes such musical favorites as “Glitter and be gay” and “Make our garden grow.” You won’t want to miss this event of the season!
