• The Gondoliers at Inglewood Town Hall

Overview

Libretto by W.S. GILBERT
Music by ARTHUR SULLIVAN

Set in Venice, and a balmy isle in the Mediterranean, this is the quintessential light opera of mixed up babies at birth, set to “the happiest music ever written by an  Englishman”.

Cachucha, fandango, bolero, Sullivan was truly inspired to write such delicious Italian and Spanish melodies Gilbert’s satire of Republicanism is still as fresh today as ever. “When everyone is somebody then no one’s anybody”. Marco and Giuseppe have just married their sweethearts Gianetta and Tessa, who they won in a game of             blind-man’s-bluff! 

On their wedding night however, the Grand Inquisitor informs them that one of them is the rightful King of Barataria. Furthermore, he, whoever he is, was married in infancy to Casilda—the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Plaza - Toro—who have just arrived in Venice to claim their daughter’s husband.

Starring: RON PIDOCK, LYNLEE WILLIAMS, LAURA SLAVIN, EMILIE WASHINTON, STEPHEN CAROLANE, DANIEL FELTON, ISABELLE MAZZARELLA, ANDREW ALESI, IAN LOWE, MARISA PANZARIN.
