The Gondoliers

Weald and Downland Living Museum, Chichester, Chichester
Set in picturesque Venice, this light-hearted operetta will whisk you away to a world of blissful romance, barbed satire and comedic chaos. Two charming gondoliers, Marco and Giuseppe, suddenly find themselves elevated to the status of royalty. Each tasked with choosing their Queen from a bevy of beautiful women, hilarity ensues when the rightful Queen arrives demanding to know which of the men is her husband. As the plot thickens and the absurdity reaches its peak, love triumphs, and the gondoliers discover that happiness lies not in noble titles but in the simplicity of true love. The witty lyrics of Gilbert and the catchy melodies of Sullivan are expertly brought to life by Illyria, who have been captivating audiences worldwide for more than thirty years. Performed in the great outdoors, ‘The Gondoliers’ promises an enchanting evening of laughter and music and will leave you with a song in your heart. Featuring impeccable comedic timing and exuberant performances this is one Illyria production not to be missed.
