Make Our Garden Grow

Leonard Bernstein, composer
Richard Wilbur, librettist

“The sweetest flowers, the fairest trees, are grown in solid ground.”

Join Heartbeat Opera as their virtual choir, orchestra, dancers, and gardeners bring to digital life Bernstein’s edifying masterpiece: Make Our Garden Grow from Candide. Soon enough they will be back together praising the gift of the human voice live in a theater. But until then, they will come together online to lift ourselves up, with resilience and hope, through our art.

Directed by Ethan Heard
