Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The 30th International Gilbert & Sullivan Festival opens with our all-time favourite production of The Gondoliers performed by the professional National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company.

Directed by and starring Simon Butteriss, The Gondoliers is one of Sullivan’s sunniest scores and makes for irresistible, joyous entertainment. Book your seats early for this season's must-see show.

The Gondoliers is a love story and a tale of mistaken identity. Marco and Guiseppe have just married but are informed that one of them is the heir to the throne of the fictional kingdom of Barataria. But which one? To complicate matters the heir was married when an infant to Casilda, who has come to Venice to claim her husband. Enjoy wonderful melodies and our favourite dance, The Cachucha.
