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!
