Some of the great writers of the 20th century contributed to Leonard Bernstein’s musical version of Voltaire’s Candide, including Lillian Hellman, Richard Wilbur, John LaTouche, Dorothy Parker, Stephen Sondheim and Bernstein himself.

This Saturday, join us at 4:30 in the Pavilion for a program dedicated to Candide‘s wordsmiths. Members of the Glimmerglass Young Artists Program will offer a lively hour-long program of poetry and lyrics set by Bernstein, Douglas Moore, Marc Blitzstein, Ricky Ian Gordon and Stephen Sondheim. Pack a picnic to enjoy between the concert and the 8:00 p.m. opening performance of Macbeth – or, if you prefer, enjoy a selection from our newly revamped concessions Marketplace, which opens at 6:00 p.m.
