Trent Opera are one of the most highly acclaimed non-professional theatre companies who have been captivating Festival audiences since 1996. Don’t miss this outstanding production of one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular operas.

The Gondoliers is a love story and a case of mistaken identity. Two gondoliers have just got married but are informed that one of them is the King of Barataria. But which one? Nobody knows, so they have to go to Barataria and reign jointly. Their problems worsen when it is discovered that the King was married when just a baby to the beautiful daughter of the Duke of Plaza Toro and is therefore identified as an unintentional bigamist! Don’t worry – in typical Gilbertian manner it all ends happily amid a cascade of sparkling music and dance. Don’t miss it!
