Constance Hauman

  • Soprano


Constance Hauman rose to international prominence when Leonard Bernstein chose her as a last-minute replacement for an ailing June Anderson, assuming the role of Cunegonde in Candide on twenty-four hour notice, for the momentous occasion of the composer conducting the renowned operetta with the London Symphony Orchestra. As a result, Miss Hauman went on to perform Candide in a four-month engagement at the Ahmanson Theater in Los Angeles (Gordon Davidson directing), a new production for Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, and the first French translation on a tour of France. She subsequently has been heard as a soloist with orchestras around the world and in the United States in concerts featuring the aria "Glitter and Be Gay."
