The merry month of May brings us a concert staging of the Leonard Bernstein musical Candide, co-produced by the Alliance Theatre and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. This adaptation of Voltaire’s satirical novel finds the naïve Candide separated from his beloved Cunegunde and traveling the world to find her. He hews fiercely to his mentor’s belief that “this is the best of all possible worlds,” despite facing ever-increasing catastrophes. Puppetry and projections will help tell the story. The 1956 original has been revived twice on Broadway. The 1974 version won Tony awards for best musical, director (Harold Prince), and scenic and costume designs.
