What we saw on Father's Day..
Gilbert & Sullivan's The Gondoliers, Feb. 22-24, March 1-3, F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre, Rockville.
I'll be performing as part of the chorus in VLOC's production of Gilbert & Sullivan's 1889 operetta--everyone is welcome!
From the G&S Archive: "The Gondoliers, or, The King of Barataria, was the twelfth collaboration by Gilbert and Sullivan. Opening on December 7, 1889 at the Savoy Theatre, The Gondoliers ran for 554 performances, and was the last of the G&S operas that would achieve wide popularity. Its lilting score has, perhaps, the most sparkling and tuneful music of them all and calls, perhaps, for the most dancing."
