Candide http://wwno.org en For Music Director, Operetta Entertains and Enriches http://wwno.org/post/music-director-operetta-entertains-and-enriches <p></p><p></p><p>This coming weekend the Loyola Opera Theatre will tackle Leonard Bernstein's <a href="http://cmfa.loyno.edu/montage"><em>Candide</em></a>, a comic operetta based on Voltaire's satiric novel. And although music director<a href="http://cmfa.loyno.edu/music/bio/carol-rausch"> Carol Rausch</a> has guided students through the opera over the years, she finds herself increasingly smitten by it. She'll explain why the play's message reverberates so clearly on this week's <em>Notes from New Orleans</em>.
