This month I have a pleasure of performing a violin part in the musical ‘Candide’, composed by Leonard Bernstein, orchestrated by John Caird. ‘Candide’ is produced by Hayward’s Douglas Morrisson Theatre and it’s an absolute delight to be a part of it. The show is directed by Michael Mohammed and David Moschler prepared the singers and conducts the show. Here is an excerpt from the show’s page:
‘An opportunity to see this glorious musical fully staged with a cast of 21 and a dynamic live orchestra. A rollicking musical satire, Candide is based on the 1759 novel by Voltaire, Candide, or Optimism, and features Leonard Bernstein’s unforgettable score and lyrics by Richard Wilbur with additional lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, John La Touche, Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker and Leonard Bernstein.’

The show will close on November 30th.
