Our 2014 Show: The Gondoliers
The Gondoliers or The King of Barataria is one of Gilbert’s most popular works, with a lilting romantic score from Sullivan. Set in Venice and a fabled island kingdom, it explores the hilarious results when monarchs attempt to rule in a republican manner.
The press was enthusiastic. The Globe trumpeted: “One of the best, if not the best, of the Gilbert and Sullivan Operas”. The Echo added: “It is not an Opera or play; it is simply an entertainment – the most exquisite, the daintiest entertainment we have ever seen.”
Presented with colorful costumes, scenery and a full orchestra, this production should be on your
“don’t miss” list this fall.
