Fast-paced, funny, and philosophical, Arizona Opera joins nationwide celebrations of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th anniversary with the Arizona Opera premiere of Candide. Based on the story by Voltaire, when the young man, Candide, sets off to explore the world after the loss of his fiancée, he and his companions are beset by an endless series of comedic disasters. With arias such as "Glitter and Be Gay” and “Make Our Garden Grow”, Candide provides audiences with the optimistic hope that “the best of all possible worlds” lies within their grasp.
