CCM at 150 Celebrates Leonard Bernstein at 100!

Join us for one of the world's most comprehensive Bernstein Centennial Celebrations!

Leonard Bernstein at 100 is the world-wide celebration of the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein and his monumental career as a composer, conductor, educator, musician, cultural ambassador and humanitarian.

The official logo for Leonard Bernstein at 100.

CCM’s celebration of Bernstein at 100 begins in January 2018 and continues through November 2018, spanning two concert seasons and over a dozen major performances! Highlights include Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, the Symphonic Suite from On the Waterfront, The Age of Anxiety, Trouble in Tahiti, Serenade after Plato's Symposium, Chichester Psalms, Songfest, Fancy Feet and much more.

Subscribers can purchase the comprehensive Bernstein Experience for $160, giving them access to every ticketed concert in CCM’s Bernstein at 100 Series at a savings of over 20% off single ticket prices.

TROUBLE IN TAHITI

Music and words by Gian Carlo Menotti
TALE FOR A DEAF EAR

Music and lyrics by Marc Bucci
Brett Scott, conductor
Amy Johnson, stage director and co-producer
Kenneth Shaw, co-producer
Gabriela Sam, assistant stage director

The CCM Opera d’arte Series of undergraduate productions proudly presents a triple bill of one-act American operas! Leonard Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti candidly portrays the troubled marriage of a young suburban couple. Written between Bernstein’s biggest Broadway successes, Trouble in Tahiti draws upon popular song styles to deliver an uncompromising critique of Mid-century American marriage. The triple bill also includes Gian Carlo Menotti’s The Telephone and Mark Bucci's rarely produced, but haunting, Tale for a Deaf Ear. Taken together, Opera d’arte's triple bill offers three contrasting views into the extremes of human relationships.
