CANDIDE, based on Voltaire’s cynical, realistic and comic 1759 novella, follows the amazing trials and tribulations of a ceaselessly optimistic young man as he makes his way through life. In the half-century since it was composed, Leonard Bernstein’s brilliant and joyous adaptation has been hailed as a landmark of American music and is a favorite in opera communities around the world.
