A GLITTERING PRODUCTION AWAITS as Anchorage Opera and the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra join nationwide celebrations of the Leonard Bernstein Centennial. Based on the story by Voltaire, the fast-paced, funny, and philosophical, Candide finds its main character setting off with friends to find the true meaning of life. Their exploits along the way include separation, war, mistaken identity, kidnapping, murder, and a shipwreck, yet they never give up their search for truth. It is a story about community, faith and humanity — all the things reflected in the legendary Leonard Bernstein and his musical career. Full of soaring arias and a brilliant overture, Candide is a treat for opera, Broadway and Bernstein fans alike. This production’s collaborative team includes two of Alaska’s largest arts producers, Anchorage stage director Teresa K. Pond, and guest conductor, Charles Prince.

The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is a stunning showpiece for orchestra and has been a family favorite in the concert hall for more than 70 years! Benjamin Britten was asked to write the score for a 1946 documentary film, Instruments of the Orchestra, designed to acquaint young people with the characteristics of various instruments. The piece was later adapted for the concert hall for orchestra and narration. This listening adventure for kids of all ages showcases instruments of the orchestra separately before uniting them all together for an unforgettable ending.

Also on the concert, Harry Potter, William Tell Overture, and much more!

Opening the evening is Tchaikovsky's "thunderingly dramatic and achingly beautiful" Romeo & Juliet Fantasy Overture. Scriabin’s aptly titled Poem of Ecstasy delivers on themes of passion, love, and creativity. Hailed by Downbeat Magazine for her “scintillating plays of light and subtle colors,” ASO harpist Megan Bledsoe Ward performs Concerto for Harp and Orchestra by preeminent Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer. What better closer than Ravel’s intense and rhythmic Boléro!
