Storyline

After gondoliers, Marco and Giuseppe, marry their sweethearts Gianetta and Tessa, they are informed that one of them is really the King of Barataria. However, there is a problem - nobody knows which is the King and which is the gondolier. Gianetta and Tessa are delighted with the idea of one of them being Queen, but later discover, to their horror, that the King was married, in babyhood, to somebody else - and that neither of them will be a queen.

Energetic take on an old favourite
30 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This as an Australian Opera production of the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta and is one of the best I've seen. The casting is excellent and the staging simple but effective. The addition of the commedia dell arte performers is a nice touch.

David Hobson and Roger Lemke as the two gondoliers, Marco and Guiseppe, do well in both voice and acting. Hobson particularly in 'Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes' shows his lyrical tenor at its best.

However, the standout for me is the Australian legend, Dennis Olsen as Don Alhambra. Olsen has made his name in Australia playing character pieces like this in many a musical production and this is one of his best.

All together it is a delightful production of one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most loved works.
