  1. Candide - Leonard Bernstein

This summer, Cheltenham Music Festival welcomes English country-house opera to the Town Hall’s Pillar Room for one night only! The internationally renowned companies of Iford Arts and Opera della Luna use intimate and unique performance spaces to create magical and captivating opera, staged in-the-round, with the best of young British musical talent.

In Bernstein’s satirical masterpiece Candide, the innocent hero – an idealistic optimist – is taken on a whirligig world quest, encountering an absurd series of unfortunate events. Funny, surreal and Pythonesque, Candide contains some of Bernstein’s greatest writing with the enduringly popular I am easily assimilated, Glitter and be gay and the radiant finale, Make our garden grow.

This sparkling new production from director Jeff Clarke continues Opera della Luna’s reputation for inventive, irreverent, hilarious and high energy shows, which never fail to delight audiences.

Ticket includes a glass of prosecco upon arrival

A co-production by Iford Arts and Opera della Luna
