Is Candide the best of all possible ways to launch our 62nd season? Absolutely. The score bristles with spectacular music, including justly famous overture, the soprano showpiece “Glitter and Be Gay” and the soaring finale, “Make Our Garden Grow.” Soprano Brenda Rae and tenor Alek Shrader return as Cunegonde and Candide, respectively, and are joined by Kevin Burdette doing quadruple duty as Voltaire, Pangloss, Martin, and Cacambo.
