Leonard Bernstein’s brilliant comic operetta Candide comes to Banff Centre for one night only in the outdoor Shaw Amphitheatre!
Based on the classic Voltaire tale of an innocent young man’s journey through a life filled with colorful characters and unexpected life lessons. The impeccable score includes sing along songs such as “Life Is Happiness Indeed,” “It Must Be So,” “You Were Dead, You Know” and “Make Our Garden Grow.”
This year we celebrate Leonard Bernstein by presenting his catchy tunes and the show’s clever lyrics with beautiful young voices, incredible characters and a witty response to Voltaire’s cynical (or, rather, realistic) philosophy.
