A Bernstein Celebration

27 April 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

TICKETS: Full $75 Senior $60 Concession $48

Leonard Bernstein’s music, as with his conducting, as with his life, is extravagant and impassioned, emotive, and always joyfully life affirming.

It swoops and soars, dips and dives, taking from here, there and everywhere, but always ends up by ‘being Bernstein’.

The rowdy and raucous downtown Divertimento, full of bustling energy, cannot help but bring a smile to the weariest of dials, as does the wonderful Candide Suite which sees one glorious number tumble out on top of another.
