Gilbert & Sullivan explained in 60 minutes

8 Sep 2019
6:00 pm
60 minute performance followed by drinks in chancel
St Mary's Church, Twickenham

A light-hearted introduction to the world of Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.

Where did they come from? What do they tell us about Victorian society, ye lower middle classes? How is it that Gentlemen of Japan and Gondoliers are so very English? What does tarantara mean - and is it the same as tantantara?

We have a little list – but after quiet calm deliberation - few answers. But there will be tunes and some explanation - it will last about an hour - refreshments will be available afterwards in the chancel.

Performed by Eve Baker (Soprano), Clarinda Chan (Soprano), Rachel Logan (Mezzo), Lisa Colclough (Mezzo and Piano), James Aitken (Tenor), Chris Britton (Tenor and Piano), Adrian Mumford (Organ and Baritone), Chris Williams (Bass) and John Albasiny (Narrator).
Entrance is FREE - with a retiring collection in aid of 'Opening up St Mary’s'.

Presented by St Mary The Virgin Twickenham
