Candide

Music by Leonard Bernstein
Lyrics by Richard Wilbur
Additional Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim & John Latouche

Mady Centre for the Performing Arts
Barrie, Ontario, Canada

Candide takes the audience in a round-the-world romp of idealistic optimism as it clashes with a series of absurdly unfortunate events. Throughout the course of the story, however, this hopefulness is constantly called into question as Candide is exiled, forced into the Bulgarian army, caught up in the Spanish inquisition, cheated out of a fabulous fortune, shipwrecked to a remote island, and generally torn apart from his love. Featuring a splendid score by the unparalleled Leonard Bernstein and a charming book by Hugh Wheeler, Candide is a witty and wacky satire of a musical.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
