A naive young man believes that 'all is for the best' even when confronted by evil. Originally performed in 1956, additional songs added in 1974. Candide explores a world that is dominated by violence, greed, war, hatred and a series of catastrophic events seemingly unmitigated by goodness, truth, beauty or God.
