Candide 2008

“…While City [Opera]’s best efforts have not eliminated the problems posed by this “new kind of show,” they at least remained loyal to Bernstein’s musical vision. Braden Toan led the orchestra in a clear and spirited reading of the score that was never lacking in inventiveness and that rendered nearly every syllable audible.”
