Candide Production

Another great production from Bedfordshire Youth Opera – congratulations to the singers, players and production team for their outstanding production of Bernstein’s Candide which ran for five nights at the end of August in The Place Theatre, Bedford.

Once again under the skilled direction of Fred Broom, this year’s cast showed off their amazing talents in a production worthy of the West End. In addition to receiving vocal tuition from Vocal Director, Lottie Bagnall the cast were fortunate to be able to spend time with some of our alumni including Rachel Nicholls, Andrew Slater, Kitty Whately and Donna Lennard. The orchestra of young players, under the baton of Ben Bottone, conquered the difficult score and the whole project came together thanks to our huge team of volunteers.

We’re already planning our production for 2019 starting with our Easter Workshop for singers. Course rehearsals and performances will run from July – August/September. Look out for application forms on this website
