Opera McGill, in collaboration with the MCO — Orchestre de chambre McGill — McGill Chamber Orchestra, proudly presents Leonard Bernstein’s exuberant, satirical operetta Candide from March 23-25. Based on the novella by Voltaire, the story follows the naive Candide as he sets off to explore the world and is beset by an endless series of comedic disasters. Since its debut in 1956, the Tony award-winning work has gone through multiple updates and alterations. Opera McGill presents the 1974 version, which is performed in one 90-minute act without intermission. Part of the Lisl Wirth Black Box Festival, and celebrating this Bernstein centennial year, Candide is directed and choreographed by Patrick Hansen with the MCO conducted by Boris Brott.

Candide features numerous beloved musical highlights, including the soprano show-stopper “Glitter and Be Gay,” the popular Overture, and the beautiful choral finale, “Make Our Garden Grow.” “Bernstein’s work is absolutely a masterpiece,” comments director Patrick Hansen, “From the opening scene, when Dr. Pangloss imparts his philosophy that “all is for the best in this best of all possible worlds,” Candide goes through a series of fabulous and torturous adventures to find his way in the world, finally discovering that he has to “make his own garden grow”.” Opera McGill’s cast of 22 plays a total of 64 roles, from pirates to sheep to dancing executioners.
