Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers


The Gondoliers premiered at the Savoy Theatre in London in 1889 and ran for 559 performances. It was immensely popular, and Queen Victoria even commanded the D’Oyly Carte company to present the work at Windsor Castle. The Venetian plot – just who is the King of Barataria? – offered considerable scope for colourful and exciting music, while Gilbert’s libretto gleefully satirizes the emerging enthusiasm for republicanism and egalitarianism. There is of course a surprise ending while ‘Take a pair of Sparkling Eyes’ and ‘We’re called Gondolieri’ (the rollicking duet for Giuseppe and Marco), are just two of the hit tunes from this great masterpiece.
