A GLITTERING 100TH ANNIVERSARY PRODUCTION AWAITS. Fast-paced, funny, and philosophical, Anchorage Opera joins nationwide celebrations of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th anniversary. Based on the story by Voltaire, Candide sets off with his friends to find the true meaning of life. Their exploits along the way, including separation, war, mistaken identity, kidnapping, murder, and a shipwreck, but they never give up their search for truth in this “best of all possible worlds.” A joint production with the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra, Randall Craig Fleischer, Conductor with staging by Anchorage director Teresa K Pond. Full of soaring arias and the rightly celebrated Overture, which has become one of Bernstein’s signature pieces, Candide is a treat for opera and Broadway fans alike.
