The Governor of Buenos Aires wishes Candide "Bon Voyage" - on a leaky ship!

Hey Kids Commuters! Welcome to Day Two of Bernstein Week on IPR's Kids Commute! This week, we're looking at the life and career of Leonard Bernstein - beloved 20th century composer, conductor and educator.

Today, we'll hear some jolly-sounding wickedness from Bernstein's 1956 operetta "Candide" - based on the philosophical novel by the French author Voltaire. The dastardly Governor of Buenos Aires, Argentina sends Candide off on a voyage - on a leaky boat!
