The Warehouse Theatre
Somerset Opera presents
Friday 22nd March at 7.30pm

(Doors open 6:45)
The story goes that an ornamental Japanese sword fell off the wall in W. S. Gilbert's study and inspired him to think up a Japanese plot for his next operatic collaboration with composer Arthur Sullivan. This evergreen work is stuffed full of lovely tunes, witty lines and unforgettable characters and has been a staple of professional and amateur musical groups since it was written in 1885. 
A strong cast of principals and chorus under musical director Sam Baker will take to the stage in a witty production by Hilary Marshall and Catherine Payne, for the delight of audiences all over the county.
