Four Seasons Theatre presents Leonard Bernstein’s Candide at the Wisconsin Union Theater tonight and Sunday. Madison Opera’s chorus master Andy Abrams is directing the production, which also features Madison Opera chorus members Doug Swenson (as Candide) and Megan Cullen (as Paquette). Really, a whole slew of Madison Opera friends are involved with Candide, too many to list, so check it out! You can read more about the production in 77 Square.
And don’t forget that the ever glamorous and in-demand soprano Danielle de Niese will be making her way to Wisconsin in just two weeks, performing at the Wisconsin Union Theater on Thursday, February 19 at 8 p.m. (Madison Opera is a presenting partner for this event). She’s also doing a master class with the UW School of Music on the 18th at 4:30 in Morphy Recital Hall. It seems Lindsay Christians was busy last week; read her interview with de Niese in 77 Square here.
