Accompanist(s): Iain Farrington (piano)

Conductor: Stephen Bullamore

To mark the centenary of WS Gilbert’s death the North Herts Guild of Singers, with invited soloists, present a romp through the witty satire of Gilbert and the incomparable melodies of Arthur Sullivan. Gilbert poked fun at all that was self-important in Victorian England. The mighty, the rich, the lawyers, the Lords - all were cleverly mocked. Even melodrama, magic, feminism and the aesthetic movement were not spared his sharp wit. Their topsy-turvy tales have left us with a rich legacy of operettas that are still regularly performed and loved throughout the world.

This concert is being performed as part of the Stevenage 2011 Festival.

Tickets for this concert can now be purchased directly from the North Herts Guild of Singers in addition to the advertised point of sale, the Gordon Craig Theatre Box Office.  Please call the Guild's ticket manager on 01462 433393.
