Who Wants to be an Opera Singer? is a fun and interactive introduction to the world of opera, written by Mark Saltzman. With a spin of the giant opera wheel, our singers compete for the coveted Golden Throat Award and a brilliant career in opera by singing some of opera’s “greatest hits” and telling us a little about the operas from which they spring.

 Free-wheeling and funny, satirical and soaring, Candide takes the audience on a round-the-world romp. Brimming with youthful innocence and basking in love, Candide is certain that he lives in the best of all possible worlds. But an unrelenting series of ridiculously unfortunate events makes him question everything he has been taught.

“Make OurLA Opera’s company premiere of Candide is presented in celebration of composer’s Leonard Bernstein’s centenary. His brilliant score features some of musical theater’s greatest hits—the exuberant overture, the show-stopping “Glitter and Be Gay”Garden Grow”—as we follow our optimistic hero’s journey from rapture to ruin to redemption.

In English with projected English translations.
