The twelfth collaboration between Gilbert & Sullivan, The Gondoliers (or The King of Barataria), tells the story of two charming Venetian gondoliers who are informed that due to an error of identity when they were young boys, one of them is the heir to the throne of Barataria. They share the responsibilities of governing until it can be ascertained which of them is which. Matters are complicated when the Duke and Duchess of Plaza Toro reveal that their beautiful daughter was married to the future king as an infant. The problem? The gondoliers are both newly married. Gilbert’s characteristically “topsy-turvy” plot is paired with some of Sullivan’s finest music in one of the duo’s most enduring collaborations.
This is Light Opera Theater, aka LOTS’, 4th production of Gondoliers since 1982. Director Robert Vann has chosen to set it in the 1950’s with some clever twists and turns that will not fail to amuse even the most ardent G&S aficionado.
There will be a live orchestra and supertitles.
