Why See The Philadelphia Orchestra - Bernstein's Candide?


Glitter and be gay with Candide!

As they reach the pinnacle of the Leonard Bernstein centenary celebrations, what could be more delightful than a recital of his spirited and enduringly popular operetta? Led by Yannick Nezet Seguin, join the orchestra as they mount a semi-staged version of Candide and invite you along on his globe-trotting adventures.

Based on Voltaire's 1759 novella, Candide is all at once a love story, a drama, a thriller and a tragedy rolled into one merry go round of ever revived characters who populate our heroes journey. From living in a swanky castle as a Baron's illegitimate son to a beggar on the streets, to earthquake causing heretic and much much more in-between, prepare to follow a dazzling story that fills the auditorium with glee and wonder.
