Long Beach Opera to Present CANDIDE
by BWW News Desk - Dec 22, 2015

On January 23 and 30, 2016, Long Beach Opera (LBO) presents composer Leonard Bernstein's satiric romp Candide at the Center Theater in Long Beach, CA.  The eclectic score mixes everything from Viennese waltzes to soaring arias to Latin tangos.  Filled with unforgettable songs such as “Glitter and be Gay, “Oh, Happy We,” “I Am Easily Assimilated” and “Make Your Garden Grow,” Candide was called By Bernstein his “personal love letter to European music.” Adapted from Voltaire's novel, the operetta takes aim at political excess, social traditions and superstitions with an underlying warning against unfettered optimism. While beset by one calamity after another, including an earthquake, exile, war, slavery, robbery and even the Spanish Inquisition, the show's hero Candide and his true love Cunegonde cling to the belief that they live in “the best of all possible worlds.”  Candide's tuneful score and recognizable characters have made it an irresistible draw for audiences around the world. David Schweizer and his creative team will put a unique LBO spin on this all-time favorite. (more...)
