This truly fabulous production of Candide was probably the best production of it ever done: it was fully staged with the resources of a major opera company, had a marvelously witty script, superb comic acting, top-notch singing, and a well thought out selection of the way-too-much music written for this show. I taped the original PBS airing of it, and it was one of my favorites for many years until I foolishly loaned it to someone who didn't return it and disappeared. I'd gladly pay a lot of money to get this production on DVD if they'd only release it.
My only slight complaint is that the show feels overly long, but that's the material, there's no way it could have been cut down any further without harming the quality of the show.
