Voltaire’s biting satire of innocence and optimism with Leonard Bernstein’s witty, Tony Award-winning score, Candide tells 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, 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.
