The Alliance Theatre and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra present the Tony-award winning musical Candide May 9-20. This popular adaptation of Voltaire’s satirical novel features music by Leonard Berstein and lyrics by Richard Wilburn, John Latouche and Stephen Sondheim.

The naïve Candide is separated from his beloved and journeys around the world to find her. In the face of ever-increasing catastrophes, he holds firm to the belief of his mentor, Dr. Pangloss, that “this is the best of all possible worlds.” The cast features Aaron Blake as Candide, Christopher Sieber as Narrator/Dr. Pangloss, and Alexandra Schoeny as Cunagonde.

The show is directed by the Alliance Theatre’s Jennings Hertz Artistic Director, Susan V. Booth, with musical direction by ASO conductor Robert Spano.
