The singing was great all around. Aside from that I was not impressed. The set design, the costumes, and the play itself was nothing to rave about. I expected to be wowed and was a bit disappointed.

We enjoyed the show but feel that the sound system needs to be enhanced.

Excellent voices - great cast! However, costumes (in second half of show) were not in keeping with the period the piece took place. Also, the "cutesy" jokes Montgomery inserts into these productions are becoming tiresome and the ones in this...continued

Quotes & Highlights

After a command performance in 1891, Queen Victoria noted in her diary that The Gondoliers was “simply charming.”


The Gondoliers

by W.S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan

Presented by Lyric at the Birch

One of Gilbert & Sullivan’s best-loved operettas, The Gondoliers concerns the young bride of the heir to the throne of Barataria, who arrives in Venice to join her husband, but can’t find him, since he was entrusted to the care of a drunken gondolier who mixed up the prince with his own son. To complicate matters, the King of Barataria has just been killed. The two young gondoliers, both recently married to local girls, must now jointly rule the kingdom until it can be determined which is the rightful king.
