Written By: Gilbert & Sullivan
Directed By: Pam Tucker (MD Kate White)
Two Venetian gondoliers marry and are then informed by the Grand Inquisitor that one of them has just become the new King of Barataria, but only their nurse, presently missing, knows which one. As Barataria needs a king to bring order to the country, they travel there to reign together jointly, leaving their wives behind in Venice until the old lady can be interrogated. It turns out that the king was wed as an infant to the gorgeous daughter of the Spanish Duke of Plaza Toro, and so it seems he is an unintentional bigamist. But this beautiful daughter is in love with a common servant! When the young Spaniard and the two Venetian wives all show up wanting to know which of them is queen, complications arise. No worries... The true identity of the king is revealed, and all turns out spectacularly well in a typically topsy turvy way by the end.
A whole lot of fun G&S flibberty gibberty to the tunes we all know and love!
