  • Self-assessed Accessibility Information

Opera, Wed 25 - Fri 27 Apr 2018, £11-£13


Haverfordwest Operatic Society welcomes you to Venice...“The Gondoliers” (or The King of Barataria).

This is the twelfth collaboration between composer Arthur Sullivan and librettist W.S. Gilbert telling the story of two charming Venetian gondoliers, Giuseppe and Marco.

An error of identity when they were young boys means that one of them is the heir to the throne of Barataria. Both are delighted with the situation and agree to share the responsibilities of governing their new kingdom until it can be ascertained which of them is which.

Matters are complicated when the Duke and Duchess of Plaza Toro reveal that their beautiful daughter, Casilda, was married to the future king as an infant. The problem? Giuseppe and Marco are both newly married and Casilda is also in love with another!

Since its premiere in 1889, ‘The Gondoliers’ has delighted audiences with its memorable score by Sullivan and its political satire, cleverly tucked into Gilbert’s witty plotline.
