Catch a Special Performance of a Leonard Bernstein Classic Live!
Don’t miss a special showcase of Leonard Bernstein’s eclectic musical masterpiece, Candide, performed by the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra! This incredible concert event presents the genius of Bernstein at the height of his prolific career with a stellar production of his well-known work.
Berstein’s Operetta Candide seems as complicated as it is colorful on the surface. Composer, pianist, conductor, writer, and teacher Leonard Bernstein put just about everything into this groundbreaking score—some numbers approach bel canto arias; others are closer to the tango, the polka, the waltz, the German chorale, the grand opera, or Gilbert and Sullivan. But Leonard Bernstein wove the diverse panoply of music that filled his dizzying musical life into Candide, making it a dazzling, harmonic journey that is a treat to see performed live.
Now you can experience this one-of-a-kind production as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra presents this tragic comedy based on the satire by Voltaire. Bernstein’s 1956 Broadway show Candide takes aim at politicians while adding unforgettable tunes to the lexicon of American song, so come witness this powerhouse of classical musicianship performing at the Atlanta Symphony Hall!
If you feel like escaping North Haven at Johns Creek Apartments in Johns Creek, Georgia for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
