“The Gondoliers” presented by Ridgewood Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company
Friday, November 8, 2019 at 7:30 pm
The Gondoliers is one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s great successes. The story centers around two young Venetian gondolieri, Marco and Giuseppe Palmieri, who find that one is actually heir to the throne of Barataria. Lovely Venetian maidens have their hearts set on these two and marriages ensue with the charming Tessa and Gianetta. Complications begin to form when the fame-seeking Duke & Duchess of Plaza-Toro appear. Their daughter, Casilda, was wedded as a baby to the soon-to-be king. Problem is, no one can figure out which man is the right one. Don Alhambra, The Grand Inquisitor, admits to a mix up when he brought the infant prince to Venice. He summons the only person who can identify the heir, the nurse Inez. In classic Gilbert & Sullivan style, a series of twists and turns plays out to a delightful ending that has a few surprises.
