THE GREATEST LOVE STORY EVER SUNG

A flickering candle and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark – so begins one of the greatest love stories in all of opera. Join the bohemian revolution in the heart of Paris as a group of struggling artists strives to create beautiful art, find love and ultimately live life to the fullest in this romantic operatic blockbuster, which features some of the most familiar and beautiful music ever written.

For over 100 years, Puccini’s most celebrated opera has moved audiences to laughter and tears with its irresistible music and its timeless tale. Soprano Julie Adams, tenor Joshua Guerrero and soprano Mané Galoyan make their DMMO debuts as Mimì, Rodolfo and Musetta, respectively, in the beloved revival of the company’s 2011 produciton.

Candide @ Blank Performing Arts Center at Simpson College
Jun 29 @ 8:00 pm

THE BEST OF ALL POSSIBLE WORLDS

Sparkling with wit and humor, Candide is part opera, part musical and entirely irreverent, drawing on everything from European operetta to Latin American dance rhythms. Bernstein’s score abounds with spectacular music, including a famous overture, the soprano showpiece “Glitter and Be Gay,” and the soaring finale, “Make Our Garden Grow.”

Voltaire’s philosophical spoof becomes a brilliant and breathless operetta that bumbles about from the Old World to the New and back again. Young Candide’s tutor told him that this was “the best of all possible worlds” and through war, plague, earthquake, shipwreck and the Spanish Inquisition, he steadfastly believed it. You will, too, when you see our remarkable cast, starring Jonathan Johnson as Candide, Deanna Breiwick (pictured above) as Cunegonde and Robert Orth as Dr. Pangloss, tell this fantastic new production with frenzy, fabulous color and flair!
