The Welsh National Opera bring Bernstein’s Candide to the New Theatre Oxford for the Festival, on Saturday 8 July at 7.20 – tickets on sale!
Saturday 8 July 2023, 7.30pm
New Theatre Oxford
Oxford Festival of the Arts is hugely thrilled to be working with our friends at the New Theatre Oxford again this year to present something very special – the Welsh National Opera with their production of Leonard Bernstein’s Candide.
Leonard Bernstein’s Candide is a supercharged wild ride in which 18th-century France crashes into 20th-century post-war America. Take a seat and strap in tight for a mind-boggling journey as we hurtle through a fantastical world of chaos – from castles in the Alps to skyscrapers in Montevideo, from earthquakes in Lisbon to the Amazonian jungles beyond the Andes. With societies riven by inequality and families displaced by war today, the story remains as relevant now as when it was first written in 1759.
