candide by toronto operetta theatre
Brian and I had our anniversary weekend this weekend and it was fantastic. Friday night we went out for dinner and had a really nice time together and last night we ventured out to see a sold-out rendition of Candide that was put on by the Toronto Operetta Theatre.
It was fantastic! I had read Voltaire’s Candide a few years ago (a used copy that I purchased at a Value Village in Vancouver) and I enjoyed it immensely, but not as much as the show — it is just so random, funny and yet philosophical.
The talent was tremendous – the leads were a delight to watch and to listen to. The costumes were also to die for. If it wasn’t leaving after the next sold-out performance, I would tell you to go and see the TOT production, but since you really can’t see it I would recommend seeing any production of Candide.
I simply adored it!
