A collaboration with choreographer Jerome Robbins and the writing team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green, Leonard Bernstein's On the Town-the story of three sailors on shore leave in New York City- arrived on Broadway in December 1944, when he was just twenty-six. Based on his popular ballet collaboration with Robbins, Fancy Free (being performed August 18), it was not only his first musical, it was a first for Comden and Green, who would become Broadway and Hollywood legends in their own right. Hit songs include "New York, New York" and "Some Other Time."

Selection from the Bernstein Songbook
BERNSTEIN Trouble in Tahiti

The lyrical, jazzy style of Leonard Bernstein's 1952 one-act opera Trouble in Tahiti has much in common with On the Town (being performed July 7) and West Side Story (July 28). Bernstein himself wrote the libretto; the scenario revolves around Dinah and her husband Sam's disaffection with their rat-race, suburban life. The plot has nothing to do with Tahiti; the title comes from a romantic movie Dinah contrasts with her workaday, unromantic existence. Trouble in Tahiti was premiered in June 1952 at Brandeis University, where Bernstein was on the faculty, and was presented by NBC on television the following November.

Fancy Free*
Divertimento for Orchestra
Serenade (after Plato's "Symposium"), for violin and orchestra 


When Leonard Bernstein and Jerome Robbins created the hit ballet Fancy Free in 1944, each was just twenty-five years old. As Bernstein's first ballet score and Robbins' first full-scale choreographic effort, it catapulted both men to stardom. In what would become his signature style, Robbins combined classical choreography with jazz and popular dance moves. Just months after Fancy Free was premiered at the old Metropolitan Opera House, its scenario had become the basis for Bernstein and Robbins' hit Broadway musical On the Town (being performed July 7). Fancy Free will be presented here in collaboration with Boston Ballet, using Robbins' original choreography.

BERNSTEIN Candide


Leonard Bernstein's delightful 1956 comic operetta Candide is based on the 18th-century philosopher Voltaire's satirical novel, which follows the title character's traumatic adventures in imperial Europe and semi-civilized South America. All the while, his teacher's philosophy of "All's for the best in this best of all possible worlds" is put to the test. Candide's vain sweetheart Cunegonde undergoes even worse trials as they're separated and reunited. Lillian Hellman wrote the original play; the song lyrics were mostly by poet Richard Wilbur. The score includes such familiar numbers as "Glitter and Be Gay" and "Make Our Garden Grow."

Reflecting the season-long theme, The Bernstein Centennial Celebration at Tanglewood will spotlight Bernstein's wide-ranging talents as a composer, his many gifts as a great interpreter and champion of other composers, and his role as an inspirer of a new generation of musicians and music lovers across the country and around the globe. The gala concert will feature a kaleidoscopic array of artists and ensembles from the worlds of classical music, film, and Broadway. The entire first half of the program is dedicated to selections from such brilliant Bernstein works as Candide, West Side Story, Mass, and Serenade. Music from the classical canon very dear to Bernstein's heart-selections from Mahler's Des Knaben Wunderhorn and music by Copland-plus a new work by John Williams, makes up a good portion of the program's second half; the finale of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony brings the program to a dramatic close.


*Joined by members of the New York Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, Pacific Music Festival, and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival.
