Bernstein Glitter & Be Gay

In , the renowned playwright Lillian Hellman proposed to Leonard Bernstein that they adapt Voltaire's Candide for the musical theater. Hellman observed a sinister parallel between the Inquisition's church-sponsored purges and the "Washington Witch Trials," fueled by anti-Communist hysteria and waged by the House Un-American Activities Committee. Charged with rage and indignition, she began her adaptation of Voltaire's with lyricist John LaTouche and Bernstein, who wrote numerous musical sketches. Before long, LaTouche was replaced by poet Richard Wilbur. Hellman, Bernstein, and Wilbur worked periodically over the next two years but labored in earnest through , a year when Bernstein was simultaneously composing West Side Story. By October , Candide was ready for performances in Boston, where Dorothy Parker contributed lyrics to "The Venice Gavotte" while Bernstein and Hellman had also added lyrics of their own to other numbers. The lyricist credits were already beginning to mount up.

Voltaire sits in silence at the center of the stage. As the music continues, the stage is flooded by all the characters of his story. By the end of the overture, they are assembled all around him and sing the Voltaire Chorale to the audience. Voltaire starts to tell his story, which begins in the country of Westphalia, in the castle of the Baron of Thunder-Ten-Tronck, as he introduces his central character, Candide, the illegitimate son of the Baron's sister. Candide reveals his simplicity and innocence in the song "Life Is Happiness Indeed".

This is a personal, thus somewhat eccentric, guide to the songs from Candide. Each piece has been assigned a number, which is quite cleverly called the Bernstein Number. This is based on the sequence used by Bernstein in his "final revised version" of Each variation of a song is given a sub-number. This system was devised before my acquisition of the conductor's score of the Scottish Opera version which also designates each selection. I have chosen to keep my system because it takes into account the variations. The credited lyricist for each piece is given below the title.

Candide is an operetta with music composed by Leonard Bernstein , based on the novella of the same name by Voltaire. The primary lyricist was the poet Richard Wilbur. Maurice Peress and Hershy Kay contributed orchestrations. Although unsuccessful at its premiere, Candide has now overcome the unenthusiastic reaction of early audiences and critics and achieved more popularity. Candide was originally conceived by Lillian Hellman as a play with incidental music in the style of her previous work, The Lark.

Стратмор оторвался от перил и переложил пистолет в правую руку. Не произнеся ни слова, он шагнул в темноту, Сьюзан изо всех сил держалась за его плечо.
