Candide @ Skylight Music Theatre | Kids Out and About Milwaukee

Candide @ Skylight Music Theatre

Leonard Bernstein’s operetta is a masterpiece for the ages. Based on Voltaire’s satire of innocence, optimism and life’s unexpected lessons, Candide tells the story of two young people, their round-the-world romp and series of absurdly unfortunate events. Bridging the gap between musicals and opera, Candide holds a special place in Skylight history, produced twice at Skylight’s old space on Jefferson Street. This is its first time on the Cabot stage.

Starting on April 17, 2020.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

Music by Leonard Bernstein

Book adapted from Voltaire by Hugh Wheeler

Lyrics by Richard Wilbur
