Review: The Adventures of ‘Candide,’ and of City Opera

Is this venture truly a renaissance of the venerable company that went out of business in 2013 after 70 adventurous years? Or should the quite variable productions that have been offered over the past year be seen as the first steps of a completely reconceived City Opera?"
