NEC Opera joins the NEC Philharmonia in a semi-staged production of Candide, Bernstein’s comic operetta based on Voltaire's satirical novella that follows the misadventures of Candide and his beloved Cunégonde.


NEC invites you to join us in celebrating the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein—Boston native, NEC Prep alumnus, and one of America’s greatest 20th-century composers, conductors, and educators.

Throughout the fall, NEC College and Prep students perform music by Bernstein, as well as composers who inspired him and works by his contemporaries.
