    About

    Candide is exclusive to Brisbane and on for a limited season, up close and personal in the Playhouse.

    From the creator of West Side Story, and based on the classic novel by Voltaire, Leonard Bernstein’s Candide combines musical theatre, opera and satire in a truly original production exclusive to Brisbane.
