Candide, music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Richard Wilbur

Directed by Jeffrey Lentz, additional lyrics by Leonard Bernstein, Lillian Hellman, John Latouche and Stephen Sondheim, book by Hugh Wheeler (based on the satire by Voltaire)

Monty Python meets Grand Opera in Leonard Bernstein’s brilliant musical adaptation of Voltaire’s satire in which a young Candide and his friends, Cunegonde, Paquette, Maximillian, Dr. Pangloss, and an old lady (with one buttock), endure one hilarious catastrophe after another as they journey around the world in search of the meaning of life in this “best of all possible worlds.”
