The Maleny Singers will present Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic operetta “The Gondoliers”.
Set in Venice and the mythical Kingdom of Barataria, this story follows the fortunes of two carefree Gondoliers, who, ten minutes after they are married, discover that one of them is King of Barataria.
No one is sure which of the two is King; we follow the machinations of the impoverished but ambitious Duke and Duchess of Plaza-Toro, as they search to discover the true heir, who they had secretly married to their daughter, when she was 6 months old. Spicing up the search are a somewhat sinister Grand Inquisitor, two new wives feeling neglected, and a doomed romantic liaison between the Ducal daughter and the Ducal drummer boy.
Directed by Margaret Taylor, the cast will include Colin Dunn, Christopher Ward, Evalee Sharples, Viera Keogh, Jenny Keys, Jim Flatt, Ian McMaster, Sarah-Jane Abbott, and Rod Johnson. Delightful duets and charming choruses will be accompanied by the Maleny Performing Arts Orchestra.
Costumes, sets, and dances will all add to your enjoyment of this mature example of W.S. Gilbert’s wit and Sir Arthur Sullivan’s joyous music.
