Candide

  • Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium (map)

OPERA MEETS BROADWAY IN THIS COMEDY FROM THE COMPOSER OF WEST SIDE STORY

Sung in English with projected lyrics

Featuring the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra

In the Age of Enlightenment, an optimistic simpleton and his band of misfits travel the world in search of happiness, only to find chaos and trouble around every corner! Based on Voltaire’s celebrated novel, Candide is a delightful satire that features hit tunes like “Glitter and be gay” and “Make our garden grow”.

Pack your bags for the adventure of a lifetime  and get ready to experience exotic destinations, outlandish characters, and Bernstein’s thrilling melodies!
