Tickets on Sale for Springfield Regional Opera's "Candide"

Springfield Regional Opera

Disease! Earthquakes! War! A woman with one buttock! Join SROpera for Leonard Bernstein’s beloved Candide, based on Voltaire’s satirical novella.

This brilliant operatic send-up of 18th-century vices and morality follows the outrageous adventures of Candide and Cunegonde as they seek peace and love in a madcap journey across the best (and often worst!) of all possible worlds.

Trouble in Tahiti


Springfield Regional Opera's celebration of Leonard Bernstein's centennial begins with the SRO premiere of Trouble in Tahiti, a jazzy operetta predating West Side Story and portraying a day in the life of a married couple navigating the challenges of the modern world.
