LA Opera Talk: Candide

Join us for an interactive presentation given by one of LA
Opera’s Community Educators! Free-wheeling and funny,
satirical and soaring, Candide takes the audience on a round the world romp. Brimming with youthful innocence and basking in love, Candide is certain that he lives in the best of all possible worlds. But an unrelenting series of ridiculously unfortunate events makes him question everything he has been taught.

LA Opera's company premiere of Candide is presented in celebration of composer's Leonard Bernstein's centenary. His brilliant score features some of musical theater’s greatest hits - the exuberant overture, the show-stopping “Glitter and Be Gay” and the life-affirming “Make Our Garden Grow" -as we
follow our optimistic hero’s journey from rapture to ruin to redemption.

Ages 18 and up.
