The State Opera’s production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s popular operetta is a sparkling version that verges on anime.
State Opera have found a winning approach to Offenbach’s operetta that is sure to win friends and influence people, but be prepared for aching ribs, because this production will have you laughing your head off. You might just want to see it twice.
State Opera start their main stage season for the year with the extremely lyrical music of Vincenzo Bellini (1801-1835). They have also started it with an absolutely sublime production of this charming opera.
