“Any questions? Ask without fear. I’ve all the answers here!” Young Candide and his sweetheart Cunegonde live in the best of all possible worlds, guided by the philosophy of the brilliant Doctor Pangloss. Then reality intervenes: and in a madcap romp through war, intolerance, earthquakes and shipwrecks, Candide discovers that his sunny outlook might – just might – be a little too optimistic. Leonard Bernstein’s irresistible operetta takes Voltaire’s comic novel and gives it the ride of its life. Packed with sparkling tunes and ludicrous jokes, and powered by pure Broadway pizzazz, Candide is a true 20th century classic – and it’s hilarious. Thierry Fischer conducts an all-star cast: philosophy was never meant to be this much fun!
