VocalEssence - Candide


Cowles Extra

With star-crossed lovers, villains, Monty Python-esque comedy, and a beautiful score, Leonard Bernstein’s Candide is opera for the people. Wrapped in irony, this musical follows the optimistic young Candide in search of “the best of all possible worlds” on an extraordinary journey to reunite with his soulmate. This performance, in partnership with Theater Latté Da and imagined by its Artistic Director Peter Rothstein, features an all-star cast who will perform a theatrical concert version of the classic operetta, allowing audiences to savor the epic beauty of Bernstein’s music.
