CandideSep 26 - Oct 06, 2012
In one lightning-paced act, the hapless bastard cousin Candide is expelled from home, drafted into the Bulgarian army, brought before the Spanish Inquisition, swindled out of a fortune, shipwrecked on a desert isle, and separated time and again from his true love Cunegonde, who bears with remarkable dignity a variety of carnal besmirchments by almost everybody. Through it all, Candide remembers the lesson of his dear master Dr. Pangloss: that "everything is for the best in this best of all possible worlds."
MOT brings "intimate opera" to a whole new level, staging this masterwork in the simplest of surroundings - ordinary classrooms. Seated at desks and in chairs, the audience will be surrounded on all sides by the tragicomic episodes of Voltaire's Candide.
