CANDIDE
An optimist's journey through the best of all possible worlds

featuring the celebrated music and orchestrations of
Leonard Bernstein
with the contributions from the greatest lyricists of the 20th century
from Stephen Sondheim to Dorothy Parker.

Optimism - easy as a pampered guest in the caste, but not as easy when cast out into the world because the Baron discovers you love affair with his daughter! Can true love, a sense of humor, and optimism sustain you through the wildest of misadventures? Candide is forced to find out. Bernstein's most effervescent score transports Candide around the globe to discover the best of all possible worlds.
