Reviews

Candide is a triumph, [...] bringing out not just the vigour, the wit and the tunefulness of the piece more than ever before, but also an extra emotional intensity. There is no weak link in the cast. Jerry Hadley is touchingly characetrful as Candide, and June Anderson as Cunegonde is not only brilliant in coloratura but also warmly dramatic. It was an inspired choice to have Christa Ludwig as the Old Woman [...] Nicolai Gedda also proves a winner in his series of cameo roles, and the full, incisive singing of the London Symphony Chorus adds to the weight of the performance without inflation.
