Gilbert & Sullivan's first success updated to the 1970s. A groovy kind of love potion…

 

"First an admission. I'm not a Gilbert & Sullivan fan, preferring grand opera, but if every production was as sharp and witty as this one, count me as a convert… G&S so often means hackneyed, unimaginative productions but this breathed new life and fun into the work… The uniformly good cast have fine voices, allied to stagecraft and excellent comic acting skills. They delivered the piece with pace and panache."

 

"Opera della Luna's inspired production shifts the action from a Victorian village to the 70s, offering great opportunities for retro clothes and dodgy social moves. Sharp and witty, it oozed fun and inventiveness. This breathed new life into the work." — Lin Wilkinson
