Storyline

The Baronets of Ruddigore have been cursed by a witch. Each Baronet, in his turn, must commit a crime a day - or die in torture. To escape his dreadful fate, the latest Baronet, Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd, disguises himself as Robin Oakapple, a farmer. Only two people know his true identity - his faithful servant, Old Adam Goodheart, and his adopted brother, Richard Dauntless, a seaman. Robin Oakapple is in love with the beautiful Rose Maybud and wants to marry her - but his future plans appear doomed when his true identity is revealed.

dreadful!
22 May 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I gave it a 4 out of 10 on the strength of some of the participants but this is a classic example of a lack of trust in the material. The relentlessly jokey approach undermines our sympathy and the casting of Vincent Price and Keith Michell is beyond belief. Vincent was cast, I suppose, because of his star power and association with horror films.

It's not so much his voice (the George Grossmith parts in G&S do not require wonderful voices.) but his lack of style. Keith is not as bad but this is not a recommendation. There are some much better entries in the series like Princess Ida and Iolanthe and even Patience.

Also on the debit side is the abridged overture and the so-called "improvements" in many of the songs.

Do yourself a favor and give it a miss!
