Ruddigore by Gilbert & Sullivan – performed by Godalming Operatic Society
February 18 - February 22
From 18-22nd at Godalming Borough Hall and 27-29th February 2020 at Leatherhead Theatre, Godalming Operatic Society is thrilled to present their production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s opera ‘Ruddigore’. (19.30pm – 22.30pm)
Directed by Ian Henderson and Musical Director, David Wright, Godalming Operatic’s Chorus and Principal cast will bring to life the engaging story of the cursed Bad Baronets of the village of Rederrin in Cornwall; their individual quests for redemption, forgiveness and ultimately love, and of course the various machinations of the pushy professional Bridemaids, the dastardly Bucks & Blades, the ambitious local maid looking to get hitched and the punitive, vengeful ancestral Ghosts along the way. With lots of drama and laughter the story unfolds with many twists and turns, but will this Gilbertian melodrama have the inevitable happy ending?
Accompanied as ever by our superb 23 piece professional orchestra, recreating that traditional, full D’Oyle Carte sound with entirely un-amplified voices, ensuring our audiences get to experience Gilbert & Sullivan operas as they are meant to be seen and heard.
Concessions are available for Seniors and all Child tickets (up to age 18!) are only £10 for every performance.
