A sparkling adaptation of Voltaire’s satirical novella, Candide melds European operetta, musicals, Latin American dance rhythms, and everything in between into its own eclectic style. Young Candide’s tutor believes everything happens for the best. Through war, plague, earthquake, shipwreck, and the Spanish Inquisition, Candide tries to hold onto this optimism. Will he become disillusioned or will he find the best of all possible worlds?
