Win tickets to The Gondoliers in Glasgow, Edinburgh or Inverness
Sorry, this competition has closed.
Grab the nearest gondola and escape to sunny Venice! With more ‘tra la la las’ per square inch than any other opera in the canon, Gilbert & Sullivan's The Gondoliers is a joy from start to finish.
Two happy-go-lucky gondoliers discover that one of them is, in fact, heir to the throne of a distant kingdom. True to their (adopted) Republican roots, they set off together to rule in idealistic, if somewhat chaotic, style...
Director and G&S aficionado Stuart Maunder teams up with Dick Bird (designer extraordinaire, famed for Kate Bush's Before the Dawn at Hammersmith Apollo) to stage a production that is fast, furious and full of fun. The score sees Sullivan at the top of his game and is packed with favourites - including the 'Regular Royal Queen' quartet - performed by a stellar cast, all singing-all dancing chorus and full orchestra.
A new co-production with D'Oyly Carte Opera & State Opera South Australia.
