Ruddigore

Wednesday, June 26, 2013 at 7:30pm

Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Kiplinger Theater 430 College Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

The Cornell Savoyards open Cornell University's summer events series with a concert version of Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, a comic opera in two acts. Tickets are free and will be available in the theater lobby starting at 6:15 p.m. on the day of the performance.

This delightful operetta brings the audience into the melodrama of a witch's curse, a hidden identity, a gallery of ghosts, and a bevy of professional bridesmaids. There is an evil baronet, a high-born hero in disguise, a virtuous heroine, a faithful servant, a true-blue, plain-spoken sailor, and a woman driven mad by love and jealousy. Gilbert turns these characters topsy-turvy, creating an exciting story with unexpected and very funny twists. Will the curse be broken? Will our hero get the girl, or will she wind up with his best friend? Come and find out!
