Composed by Leonard Bernstein and based on Voltaire’s satiric comedy of the same name, Candide is the story of a young man (Candide) who sets off with his friends to find the true meaning of life. Their exploits along the way, including separation amid war, mistaken identity, kidnapping, murder and a shipwreck, cause them all to question their philosophy that “all is for the best.” In the end, optimism remains, but good sense prevails. Fully-costumed and staged; sung in English with supertitles.
