Don’t miss this opportunity to spend an evening with the Edinburgh Gilbert and Sullivan Society as they present a new and exciting production of the ever-popular musical, The Yeomen of the Guard - a bittersweet story full of melodrama, thrills and intrigue.
In this fabulous show, W.S. Gilbert is at the very top of his game, adapting his usual patter songs, comedy duets and tongue-twisting dialogue to reflect the darker atmosphere of deception and intrigue within the sombre walls of the Tower of London. All this is mingled with Arthur Sullivan’s most impressive music to guarantee you an evening of pure theatrical magic.
The Yeomen of the Guard is a story of high drama and romance. Amidst the colourful pageantry and splendour of the Tower of London we find a collection of fascinating characters whose situations will enthral and intrigue you. Gilbert and Sullivan both considered this to be the best of their joint works. Who are we to disagree?
What the papers say about EDGAS:
Yeomen “...the production is impressively staged...full of vitality...subtle touches put the show above the rest.”
Edinburgh Evening News
Pirates - “If all amateur productions of the Savoy Operas were as good as this, professional companies would be required once again to raise their standards.”
Patience - “Note-perfect production is a delight.”
