The Yeomen of the Guard
On October 19th, 7PM and October 20th 2PM, the CT Gilbert and Sullivan Society will be performing The Yeomen of the Guard at Valley Regional High School, Deep River, CT.
Many consider The Yeomen of the Guard to be Gilbert and Sullivan's finest work. Ian Bradley, in "The Complete Annotated Gilbert and Sullivan," has the following to say about this classic.
"The Yeomen of the Guard is the nearest that Gilbert and Sullivan got to a grand opera. Both librettist and composer had a high opinion of the work. Gilbert said that he regarded it as 'the best thing we have done,' and Sullivan told the 'Sound Musical Magazine' that it was his favourite opera."
With sets, lavish costumes, full orchestra and chorus, Connecticut Gilbert and Society productions are staged as closely as possible to the libretto and score of the original work.
While The Yeomen of the Guard has about it a seriousness and a touch of sadness not seen in their other works, it is yet filled with great wit and humor, and has some of the most beautiful and moving music ever composed by Sir Arthur Sullivan.
If you are a Gilbert and Sullivan fan you will not want to miss this show. If you are not, this just might be the show to change your mind.
