Gilbert & Sullivan's The Sorcerer
It is midday in the lovely village of Ploverleigh, and a young man of the Grenadier Guards, Alexis Pointdextre, is betrothed to the blue-blooded Aline Sangazure in a celebration that afternoon. Alexis, however, is obsessed with the idea of love bringing unprecedented social equality to everyone and engages the services of the proprietor of J.W.Wells & Co. (A.k.a The Sorcerer) to concoct a love potion. This causes everyone in the village to fall into a deep sleep and, upon waking at midnight, fall in love with the first person they see (unless already married!). This results in a series of amusing mésalliances, including some unfortunate ones that Wells regrets. To break the spell, Wells or Alexis must offer their respective lives to Ahriman, a destructive ancient spirit. The spell must be broken! But how? Join us to find out. Full of laughs, mystery and magical doings, you'll enjoy this witty comic opera!
