The chorus of the Gondoliers

Sunny, funny and with more ‘tra la la las’ per square inch than any other opera in the canon, The Gondoliers is a joy from start to finish.

In a flight of the satirical whimsy so typical of G&S, two happy-go-lucky gondoliers discover that one of them is, in fact, heir to the throne of a distant kingdom. True to their (adopted) Republican roots, they set off together to rule in idealistic, if somewhat chaotic, style… Director Stuart Maunder, Artistic Director at State Opera South Australia, teams up with designer Dick Bird (The Mikado 2016) to stage a production that is fast, furious and full of fun.

“The Gondoliers is a glorious confection - the sunniest, most joyous of the Savoy scores, jam-packed with star roles, all unforgettable. It's an irresistible helping of relentless joy.” Stuart Maunder
