  • A half century later, Bernstein's brave attempt at mixing classical with commercial still has issues. Thankfully, they have nothing to do with the marvelous music here.

Audience Reviews for Candide

    I don't quite know what to say about it. I was genuinely moved by the ending. I absolutely hated the comical treatment of rape, and I nearly stopped watching it. The cast is excellent, and the music and performances are top flight. So I'm really torn here. I don't get Voltaire in this story. Here's a man who dedicated himself to changing the world for the better, and when he gets to the subject of rape and its consequences he cops out. He could have done much better than this. He knew Madame Pompadour. A man with his level of curiosity about everything, who wanted to write a definitive satire on how this was not "the best of all possible worlds" could have spent at least a similar amount of time on rape and its consequences as he did on the devastation of slavery and natural disasters. I still love his other writings, though.
