The Festival of G&S Opens Thursday 23rd April 2015

Theatre lovers are in for a triple treat this Autumn with The Festival of Gilbert & Sullivan!

Proudly presented by The G&S Society, this exciting festival will be staged at The Arts Theatre in Adelaide and feature a family-friendly line-up of three semi-staged operas; H.M.S. Pinafore (4 performances), Princess Ida (3 performances) and Ruddigore (3 performances).

The festival will run from Thursday 23 April to Saturday 2 May 2015 and over the 10 nights event-goers can expect a new inventive take on the classic comic-operas.

Featuring an onstage orchestra under the baton of three talented musical directors, a massive combined cast of players bringing to life approximately 34 thrilling characters and a procession of exciting costumes that carry a history all of their own, this is set to be a celebratory event of massive proportions!

Come along and celebrate the wittiness of Gilbertian dialogue and revel in Sullivan's music at the upcoming Festival of Gilbert & Sullivan. It's sure to delight the whole family!
