'Candide' camera

Thinking about Latin love (see entry below) reminds me of the only conjugation I know in that language—via Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein.

The clip is from From the 2005 "Live on Broadway" version of "Candide," with the New York Philharmonic under conductor Marin Alsop, and I am so sorry I missed it. Let me know if you want to see more clips from this performance, as a generous soul has posted several to YouTube, including an amazing performance by Patti LuPone as the Old Lady.

Dr. Pangloss: Sir Thomas Allen
Candide: Paul Groves
Cunegonde: Kristin Chenoweth
