Love triangles abound – with resolutions romantic, comic and tragic – in this tale of intrigue and betrayal set against the majestic backdrop of the Tower of London.
Mission Theatre regulars, Bath G&S Society, return with a fully-staged production of the operetta that many regard to be the duo’s greatest achievement. Gilbert’s libretto combines poignancy and tragedy with humour, and the score boasts some of Sullivan’s finest music. From the haunting I Have a Song to Sing O! to the majestic When Our Gallant Norman Foes, the music matches every changing mood.
In Scott Rogers’s exciting new production we are transported to 1942 with the Tower community in the midst of WW2. A political prisoner is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, whilst catastrophe and
intrigue ensue as others attempt to release him from this devious plot and secure his freedom from the Tower and the firing squad.
Don’t miss this chance to see a fully-staged Gilbert & Sullivan opera at The Mission Theatre.
