Come see and hear the Aesthetic Realism Theatre Company’s performance of Eli Siegel’s thrilling work–with many scenes from the novel: “Evil Seen Beautifully! or, Voltaire’s Candide.” There’s nothing people need more at this time than an accurate, courageous, lively, and beautiful way to see the relation of good and evil in this world. That’s what this dramatic—sometimes hilarious—event has!
This is a theatrical and comedic matinee about Voltaire’s novel of 1759. In his discussion of the book, Eli Siegel, critic, poet, and founder of Aesthetic Realism, said:
“Candide, though written in the middle of the polite 18th century, is one of the giddiest, speediest works that ever lived. And its beauty is its speed. It is a poetic, musical composition, with evil presented clearly in a tireless sort of dance.”
And there will be incidental music on flute & harpsichord, performed by flutist Barbara Allen, and Dr. Edward Green.
It will be an unforgettable event!Buy tickets/get more info now
