Leonard Bernstein’s CANDIDE

Friday, February 23 through Sunday, February 25
Kravis Center for the Performing Arts
Presented by Palm Beach Opera

From February 23-25, Palm Beach Opera celebrates the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with his comic operetta CANDIDE, in the first ever fully staged Bernstein work presented by Palm Beach Opera. For this colorful multi-media production, Chief Conductor David Stern (a friend of the Bernstein family) will be at the musical helm, and Jay Lesenger will be the stage director.

Recent Juilliard graduate and upcoming tenor Miles Mykkanen will sing the title role of Candide in his Palm Beach Opera debut. Also making her company debut, soprano Alisa Jordheim, lauded for her “flawless coloratura” and “pinpoint high C’s,” portrays the character Cunegonde, while former Palm Beach Opera Benenson Young Artist Tobias Greenhalgh plays Maximilian. Adding luster to the cast, opera legend mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves returns to Palm Beach Opera as The Old Lady, and Tony Award nominee Ron Raines debuts as Pangloss
