AN EVENING WITH MR WS GILBERT AND MR ARTHUR SULLIVAN

November, 2019 - Sandridge & Harpenden

A cornucopia of music and lyrics from these great ‘Savoyards’. The show featured the SACO chorus and sundry soloists, ably accompanied at the pianoforte by Mr Julian Barber. The artistes performed excerpts from all the ‘Savoy’ collaborations of these distinctly British operettists.

All of last season's performances were sold out, so these two performances were by popular demand!

THE BOATSWAIN'S MATE

October, 2019 - Abbey Theatre Studio

A comic opera about love- lost, gained and manipulated. The Boatswain's Mate is a one act piece written and composed by British suffragette Ethel Smyth in 1913–14, based on a story of the same name by William Wymark Jacobs. It was Smyth's fourth opera. The piece centers around a humorous battle of the sexes featuring a feisty and resourceful heroine who outwits her scheming suitor.

RUDDIGORE

March, 2019 - Abbey Theatre

This Gothic melodrama with witches, ghosts and disguises boasts some of Sullivan’s best music and a funny and poignant libretto from Gilbert. A successful 5 performance run was enjoyed by all on both sides of the curtain, and the liveliness of the cast was praised by the audience.
