  • August 03, 2004 Praise for "The Gondoliers"

    In operetta number 12, we find hilarious situations, superb characters, and wonnderful, purely brilliant music. Two ordinary Gondoliers named Marco and Giuseppe find themselves the joint rulers of a Spanish island called Barataria. The moth-eaten Duke of Plaza Toro wishes to establish his beautiful daughter Casilda, who married the...

    royal prince of Barataria when she was an infant, and thus he brings his daughter, his wife, and his drummer, Luiz to Venice to find the King. The fearsome Don Alhombra del Bolero, the Grand Inquisitor of Spain, explains that the King is either Marco or Giuseppe, but he doesn't know which. To make matters even more hectic, both Gondoliers have just married and Casilda is in love with Luiz! After three months time the real king is revealed (small hint: it is neither Marco nor Giuseppe!) and the Gondoliers and their friends return to a happy life of song and dance.
