Dave chats with Director Tony Sprent and Michael Topfer from the Gilbert and Sullivan Society
Modern day love is so complicated isn’t it? The much loved Gilbert & Sullivan operetta returns to the Supreme Court for four weekends in January.
Breach of promise of marriage is a very serious crime! The fickle and bigoted defendant, Edwin, has fallen in love with another woman and has jilted the plaintiff, the beautiful Angelina. Unfortunately for Edwin, all of the members of the jury (and the judge) have fallen for Angelina themselves. Edwin proposes that in order to solve the conflict, he “marry this lady today and the other tomorrow,” which, naturally, Angelina objects to. Come and find out the ultimate resolution that pleases everyone with ‘joy unbounded’!
Gilbert and Sullivan’s classic comic operetta is played in the magnificent setting of Court #1 at the Supreme Court of Tasmania. Presented by The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Tasmania. Directed by Tony Sprent. Musical Director and accompanist is Hans Kooij.
