The Pittsburgh symphony presents favorites by Bernstein, Tower and Berlioz, Apr 24 @ 8pm

Centre Culturel Jean Vilar, 44 Allée des Épines, 78160 Marly-le-Roi

Opera fuoco Stage Director Catherine Vrignaud-Cohen said this about staging Candide: "The infamous philosophical tale of Candide is an epic legend, a voyage across the world. A world where humans are propelled from place to place by their thoughts and intentions. The natural catastrophes, the shipwrecks at sea, the excess of injustice and intolerance, fanaticism … these could all be newspaper headlines of our time."
