OPERA DELLA LUNA present CANDIDE
at Roxburgh Hall, Stowe, Buckingham

Fast-paced, funny, and philosophical, this Tony award-winning Broadway smash is now considered an operatic masterpiece. Based on the famous novella by Voltaire, the naïve Candide sets off to explore the world, beset by an endless series of comedic disasters. With musical highlights including “Glitter and Be Gay” and “Make Our Garden Grow,”and one of the best overtures ever composed for a Broadway musical, Candide leaves audiences humming hit tunes and affirms that the path to happiness is seldom straight.

Candide is a co-production with Iford Arts and comes to Stowe direct from Iford, via the Cheltenham Festival. A performance of Candide is a huge undertaking as the story is told over a wide canvas as the story moves from Westphalia, to Paris, Portugal, the New World, and finally Venice. Opera della Luna is thrilled to have the chance of joining with Iford Arts in staging this masterpiece, and to add Bernstein’s terrific operetta to our repertory. Don’t miss it!
