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

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!
