A delightfully tongue-in-cheek musical version of Voltaire's classic satire that touches the mind as well as the heart, featuring a brilliant score by renowned composer Leonard Bernstein and poet-laureate Richard Wilbur, Candide chronicles the wonderfully offbeat adventures of an eternal optimist whose view of life is constantly challenged by corrupt monarchs, religious zealots, and conniving relatives.

Larry Carpenter, who piloted last season's successful Animal Crackers for the Huntington, will direct this American musical theatre masterpiece. Combining satirical charm with beautiful melodies, Candide is a joyous story for young and old alike.
