ABOUT ABOUT

Join the Delaware Valley Opera Company for CANDIDE! This delightful comic operetta is 100% satire, 100% hilarious, and 100% toe-tapping fun. Our hero, Candide, leads a charmed life on his farm. He’s in love with the beautiful, wealthy Cunegonde, who has agreed to marry him. It is easy to see why he believes his esteemed teacher and mentor, Dr. Pangloss, who teaches that “this is the best of all possible worlds.” Until…everything goes wrong…Candide bravely faces each tragedy and pitfall, clinging to his believe that all is right and good in this world…despite evidence to the contrary!


Music by Leonard Bernstein. Lyrics by Richard Wilbur, John Latouche, Dorothy Parker, Lillian Hellman, Stephen Sondheim, and Leonard Bernstein. Book by Lillian Hellman and Hugh Wheeler.
