Charles Court Opera and The International Agatha Christie Festival present: EXPRESS G&S

September 15 @ 19:30 to 21:00

Tickets £15.00

The “masters of Gilbert & Sullivan” present their side-splitting spoof of a classic railway murder mystery, while ripping through material from every single G&S opera with a cake soaked butter knife!

Get ready to be swept away on this Topsy-turvy journey from Cornwall to Chancery Lane, from Titipu to the Tower of London, from Portsmouth to Fairyland – all aboard the G&S Express!

A trio of intriguing travellers (and a pianist) take on multiple characters, uncovering clue upon red herring in this extraordinary, inventive, witty murder mystery spoof, which is splattered with favourite songs from the Savoy operas including ‘The Pirates of Penzance’, ‘The Mikado’ and ‘H.M.S. Pinafore’, as well as from those less performed, such as ‘The Sorcerer,’ ‘Princess Ida’ and ‘Utopia Ltd’.

All aboard the G&S Express – destination: Murder!
