Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Candide is an operetta with music composed by Leonard Bernstein, based on the novella of the same name by Voltaire. First performed in 1956, the original libretto was written by Lillian Hellman; but since 1974, has been generally performed with a book by Hugh Wheeler, which is more faithful to Voltaire''s novel. The primary lyricist was the poet Richard Wilbur. Other contributors to the text were John Latouche, Dorothy Parker, Lillian Hellman, Stephen Sondheim, and Leonard Bernstein. Hershy Kay, John Mauceri, and Maurice Peress contributed orchestrations. Although unsuccessful at its premiere, Candide has now overcome its initial unenthusiastic reaction and achieved enormous popularity. It is very popular among major music schools as a student show because of the quality of its music and the opportunities it offers to student singers.
