Leonard Bernstein's Classic Musical: Candide
Set to the superb music of American master Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story, On the Waterfront) and the inventive lyrics of Richard Wilbur and Stephen Sondheim (Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods), Candide invites you on a madcap odyssey around the world. This Washington National Opera production of the classic operetta, originally adapted from Voltaire's famed novel, finds the naïve titular hero setting off to find his one true love, the beautiful Cunegonde, while enduring a series of comic misadventures that take him through wars, plagues, pirates, swindlers and even the Spanish Inquisition. Along the journey you'll be treated to renditions of such memorable tunes as "Glitter and Be Gay," "Make Our Garden Grow" and "The Best of All Possible Worlds," with accompaniment from the WNO Orchestra. Catch Candide at the Kennedy Center Opera House in Washington, D.C.
