Cox & Box plus a selection of Gilbert and Sullivan favourites
Two lodgers, one bedroom, one unexpected meeting....
Jorvik Gilbert and Sullivan Company
Saturday 11 April 2015
Adapted from the famous farce Box and Cox, by John Madison Morton, Cox & Box was Sir Arthur Sullivan’s first foray into comic opera.
Sergeant Bouncer, an old soldier, has a scheme to get double rent from a single room. By day he lets it to Mr. Box (a printer who is out all night) and by night to Mr. Cox (a hatter who works all day).
His plan works well until Mr. Cox is, unexpectedly, given a day's holiday and the two lodgers meet, and they discover that they share more than the same bed...
The second act will consist of a selection of some of the most well-known and popular Gilbert and Sullivan music, and will chart the history of the famous and prolific partnership.
A mixture of solos, ensemble pieces and chorus numbers, from a range of shows, including The Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado and H.M.S Pinafore, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!
