Libretto by W.S.GILBERT
Music by ARTHUR SULLIVAN


Set in Venice, and a balmy isle in the Mediterranean, this is the quintessential light opera of mixed up babies at birth, set to “the happiest music ever written by an Englishman”. Cachucha, fandango, bolero, Sullivan was truly inspired to write such delicious Italian and Spanish melodies. Gilbert’s satire of Republicanism is still as fresh today as ever. “When everyone is somebody then no one’s anybody”.

Marco and Giuseppe have just married their sweethearts,
Gianetta and Tessa, who they won in a game of blind-man’s-buff!
On their wedding night however, the Grand Inquisitor informs
them that one of them is the rightful King of Barataria.
Furthermore, he, whoever he is, was married in infancy to Casilda
– the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Plaza-Toro – who
have just arrived in Venice to claim their daughter’s husband.

Working within the COVID-19 Policy of the Venue, the Box Office for this show will not open for non-subscription tickets until approximately one month before the Season. We are hopeful this can be brought forward. In any case, Subscribers will be the first seats booked.

Further, the tickets for shows at the Alexander Theatre will need to be collected from the Box Office upon arrival at the theatre, before the show. They are not providing print-at-home ticketing, or handing GSOV physical tickets for posting to Subscribers. Again, this policy may change as the year rolls on and confidence improves in the handling of the pandemic.
