Saturday 23rd September - 7.30 pm
 
The Sorcerer - Gilbert and Sullivan

“Energising and enthusing to watch …", "Punchy, toe-tapping and thrilling to hear” is how local press described last year’s tour by the renowned West Yorkshire Savoyards. We are pleased to welcome back the Savoyards with their 2017 production the Sorcerer, a delightful comic opera from the Gilbert and Sullivan partnership, which takes a satirical look at the class distinction which existed in Victorian time.

Starry eyed young lovers Alexis and Aline wish everyone in their village could be as happily besotted as they are, so they hire John Wellington Wells, from a highly respectable London firm of sorcerers, to administer a love potion to the villagers. The result is chaotic with everybody falling in love with the first person they see.

The talented and experienced Savoyards cast is drawn from the region’s best local companies and includes many of the principal performers who will be familiar from previous productions. They will once again be directed by ex D’Oyly Carte professional Alistair Donkin and the orchestra will be conducted by musical director Oliver Longstaff.

Doors open at 6.45 pm.
