Bernstein’s Candide

The TSO makes its major contribution to the global tributes to Leonard Bernstein’s centenary. Bramwell Tovey—whose early career was given a major boost through conducting Bernstein’s music in the composer’s presence—leads a brilliant cast of vocalists, members of the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and the Orchestra in Bernstein’s enchanting operetta based on Voltaire’s satirical story about a guileless young man’s education in the ways of the world.
