Featuring a legendary score by Leonard Bernstein. Part sophisticated operetta, part wacky screwball comedy with shades of Monty Python, this funny irreverent satire is a musical expression of Voltaire's tongue in cheek send-up of optimistic philosophies. The story - Candide is expelled from home, drafted into the army, brought before the Spanish Inquisition, swindled out of a fortune, shipwrecked on a desert isle and separated time and again from his true love Cunegonde. Through it all, Candide remembers the lesson of his dear master Dr. Pagloss, that ‘everything is for the best in this best of all possible worlds’. All ages.
