Musical
Part of the Alliance Series

Recommended for ages 12+ due to mild sexual situations and violence.

The Alliance Theatre and Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will co-produce a concert staging of the Tony Award-winning musical Candide in Symphony Hall. In this popular adaptation of Voltaire's satirical novel, the naïve Candide is separated from his beloved and journeys around the world to find her while fiercely retaining his mentor's belief that "this is the best of all possible worlds" in the face of ever-increasing catastrophes. Candide will feature a cast of actors, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, and the Atlanta Symphony Chorus in this historic Alliance Theatre/Atlanta Symphony Orchestra co-production.  

“Over the course of the next two seasons, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will celebrate the music of two famous “LBs”: Leonard Bernstein and Ludwig van Beethoven. From two different centuries and two different worlds, both “LBs” embraced an egalitarian idealism and displayed a groundbreaking genius. As part of this celebration, we are delighted to collaborate with the Alliance Theatre to bring Leonard Bernstein’s irresistible operetta Candide to the Symphony Hall stage.” —Jennifer Barlament; Executive Director, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
