I'd use Nginx webserver on a light Debian droplet, and a CDN like Cloudflare or something if you don't want to run cache plugins. Memcache on the server could help too in some circumstances...
Check out Using Cloudflare as "administrator" suggested would help decrease load time as well.

Varnish is an HTTP accelerator and a useful tool for speeding up a server, especially during a times when there is high traffic to a site. It works by redirecting visitors to static pages whenever possible and only drawing on the server itself if there is a need for an active process. This tutorial covers installing wordpress on a LEMP stack (with nginx instead of apache), and then installing varnish.
