Two brothers, one of them a king – but which one?
The University of York Gilbert & Sullivan Society
Thursday 23 February to Saturday 25 February 2017
The gondolier brothers Marco and Giuseppe Palmieri are the most charming bachelors in all of Venice, and today they will each choose a bride. All is well for 30 happy minutes - until the Grand Inquisitor of Spain appears to inform the brothers that one of them is in fact the son of the late King of Barataria. The only problem is, nobody is quite sure which brother it is.
Elsewhere, the penniless Duke of Plaza-Toro and his overbearing wife arrive from Spain to seek the king, who was married to their daughter Casilda when they were both infants. Unfortunately for Casilda, she is already in love with Luiz the drummer boy. Will any of our couples get their happy ending?
The Gondoliers will be our 45th main show since the society's formation in 1972, and with a stellar cast and cleverly updated script, it promises to be one of our best shows yet!
No booking fees for any show at Joseph Rowntree Theatre.
