The Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will present Leonard Bernstein’s Candide, the first operetta in the Opera Series, on October 13, 14, and 16, 2016, at The Plaza Live.
From the team that brought you last season’s hit production of The Magic Flute, join Maestro Eric Jacobsen and a stellar cast for Bernstein’s operetta, a fully-costumed production sung in English with supertitles.
Candide is the story a young man (Candide) who sets off with his friends to find the true meaning of life. Their exploits along the way, including separation, war, mistaken identity, kidnapping, murder, and a shipwreck, cause them all to question their philosophy that “all is for the best.” In the end, optimism remains, but good sense prevails.
Music Director Eric Jacobsen and the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra will be joined by Alison Moritz as Stage Director, and John Heginbotham as Choreographer.
The production features Miles Mykkanen as Candide, Evan Jones as Pangloss, Sharleen Joynt as Cuégonde, Alex Mansoori as Vanderdendur, and Samantha Barnes Daniel as Paquette.
Tickets are available online at orlandophil.org, by calling (407) 770-0071, or in person at the Box Office, located at The Plaza Live (425 N. Bumby Avenue, Orlando).
Opening Night (Oct 13), join Maestro Eric Jacobsen and members of the production for a post-performance Q & A.
