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”.
With a talented cast including RON PIDCOCK, LYNLEE WILLIAMS, STEPHEN CAROLANE, DANIEL FELTON, LAURA SLAVIN, EMILIE WASHINGTON, NICK SHARMAN, ISABELLE MAZZARELLA, ANDREW ALESI, ANNA CASTLE with SOLOISTS, ENSEMBLE and FULL ORCHESTRA. This will be a splendid New Production with lavish new sets and gorgeous costumes.
