His larger-than-life musical genius brought us countless treasures that built a bridge between musical theater, song, and classical music, and personified an era of American music. In 2018, the world celebrates the 100th birthday of the great Leonard Bernstein, a luminary artist whose musical legacy is as richly layered and eclectic as his viscerally exciting orchestrations.

Join the Lyric Opera Orchestra under the baton of the acclaimed Broadway conductor David Chase as Lyric pays tribute to Bernstein with a thrilling night of music. International opera stars Susan Graham and Nathan Gunn, and two-time Tony nominee Broadway star Kate Baldwin headline this one-night-only event. 

The first half of the performance is Bernstein’s captivating, one-act opera Trouble in Tahiti, both funny and poignant, starring Susan Graham as Dinah and Nathan Gunn as Sam, along with a trio of singers from the Ryan Opera Center Ensemble. The second half will feature Kate Baldwin and other voices from the evening in a program of beloved gems from the Bernstein vocal catalog. Don’t miss this monumental celebration of an American icon!
“I can’t live one day without hearing music, studying it, playing it, or thinking about it.”
Leonard Bernstein
