GILBERT AND SULLIVAN A LA CARTE presents a miscellany of music by Gilbert and Sullivan, with musical numbers performed by five singers famous for their work with D’Oyly Carte, accompanied by The British Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by David Steadman.
The musical numbers are laced together by contemporary reviews, diary entries and anecdotal reference to tell the tempestuous story of Gilbert and Sullivan’s relationship with each other and their producer, Richard D’Oyly Carte.
From Poor Wand’ring One to Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes, the evening contains musical numbers from 10 of their operettas.
D’Oyly Carte opened the Grand Theatre in 1894 with a performance of Utopia Limited, and this concert will feature music from this opera as a celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the theatre.
