This comic opera is a parody of the stock melodrama: the villain who carries off the maiden; the poor-but-virtuous heroine; the hero in disguise and his faithful old retainer; and ghosts coming to life to enforce a curse.
Gilbert is at his best in this world of topsy-turvydom, and Sullivan’s score both reflects and tempers it with a combination of catchy patter songs and some of his most beautiful solos, duets, trios and choruses.
Our production included a cast and chorus of more than 50, and was staged January 26, 27, 28 and February 1, 2, 3, 4, 2018, to glowing reviews.
