Be transported to Venice for a night of comic opera when you attend Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Gondoliers” performed by The Children’s Music Program of the First Church Belmont Unitarian Universalist, located at 404 Concord Ave. just outside Belmont Center.
The plot is typical G&S – a topsy turvy comedy in which two married Venetian gondoliers, Giuseppe and Marco, are told they are not brothers and that one is the long-lost heir to the King of Barataria. And the only person who does know is their former nurse who is now the wife of a pirate in a faraway land. To make matters worse, the Duke of Plaza-Toro reveals that his daughter was married to the young prince in infancy, meaning one of the gondoliers has two wives!
Live music by professional musicians will accompany the children’s voices. A wonderful cast ranging in age from 4 through high schoolers will perform each of the four nights. This show is sure to be fun for all ages.
Performances are being held on:
- Thursday, Nov. 9, 5:30 p.m.
- Friday, Nov. 10, 7 p.m.
- Saturday, Nov. 11, 7 p.m.
- Sunday, Nov. 12, 3 p.m.
