|The Gondoliers : The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of WA's 60th Anniversary production
The Gondoliers is a typical Gilbert & Sullivan "fun" operetta with beautiful maidens, lusty gondoliers, an anti-hero Duke, a villainous Grand Inquisitor and babies mixed at birth. We are told that one of the two principal gondoliers is, in fact, the long lost King of Barataria, but...which one?
In anticipation of a happy outcome the gondoliers all move to the South Sea Island of Barataria and there they can setup a court, but one which is run upon strictly republican lines. How can this work? Surely you can't have a republican king, we are all told. Well the plot thickens, and then is resolved with a happy ending for all - how else can Gilbert and Sullivan end?
All of this with some of Sullivan's happiest and most brilliant music such as Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes, When a Merry Maiden Marries and, of course, the dubious military exploits of the Duke of Plaza Toro.
This is a great evening or afternoon's entertainment for the whole family.
