 Portrait

Leonard Bernstein
1918 - 1990

Leonard Bernstein is one of the most widely performed 20th-century composers. The wonderful excitement of his style comes from his combining classical and popular idioms, using jazz-inspired energy and theatrical panache.

A figure highly associated with New York, he is particularly famous for his hugely popular stage musicals: West Side Story (made into a film), On the Town, and Candide (a comic operetta). He also had an important role as an educator, producing some pioneering work on television.

Bernsteinís incredibly popular Candide will be on at the ENO from 23rd June to 12 July. Click here to visit their site.
