The Yeomen of the Guard

September 4th 7:30 pm

 

National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company

The Yeomen of the Guard

Accompanied by a full Orchestra

The Yeomen of the Guard is set in the Tower of London. Colonel Fairfax, a gentleman, soldier and scientist is wrongly accused of sorcery, imprisoned in the Tower and sentenced to be beheaded within the hour. To avoid leaving his estate to his accuser he secretly marries strolling gypsy, Elsie Maynard. Jester Jack Point is also in love with Elsie but agrees to the marriage knowing that Fairfax will soon be executed. However, Fairfax escapes, throwing the Tower into confusion and setting in motion a number of intriguing plot twists ending in tragedy for one of the players.

The Yeomen of the Guard is deeper and darker than the usual comic Gilbert & Sullivan operas and is perhaps the most emotionally engaging of the canon. Many consider the score to be Sullivan’s finest.

Sarah Helsby Hughes directs a brand-new production and Richard Gauntlett stars as Jack Point.

Running time: 2 hours 40 minutes (including interval)
