Adam Cooper will choreograph the Menier Chocolate Factory’s (pictured) new Christmas production of Candide.
Cooper has previously worked on several West End hit shows, including Little Shop of Horrors, Sweet Charity, and Top Hat at the Aldwych Theatre.
He will work alongside director Matthew White to revive Leonard Bernstein’s 1956 musical, which is based on Voltaire’s 1759 novel of the same name.
Cooper began his career as a dancer in the West End, touring extensively throughout the UK after training at the Royal Ballet School.
As a choreographer, he has worked on many London productions, including Singin’ in the Rain, Grand Hotel and most recently, Simply Cinderella at the Curve, Leicester.
