The Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Austin presents a very special performance of Trial by Jury, with sparkling music by Arthur Sullivan and hilarious libretto by W. S. Gilbert. Artistic Director Ralph MacPhail, Jr. and Musical Director Jeffrey Jones-Ragona will lead the production of this melodic and comedic delight of a show last performed by the society in 2002. Trial by Jury will be a fully-staged chamber production of the entire opera, with costumes, props, the suggestion of a set, a reduced chorus and grand-piano accompaniment.
Hear some of your favorite G&S singers, with Arthur DiBianca as The Learned Judge, Carol Brown as The Plaintiff, Holton Johnson as The Defendant, Janette Jones as Counsel for the Plaintiff, David Fontenot as The Usher, Robert L. Schneider as The Foreman of the Jury, and a chorus of bridesmaids, gentleman of the jury, and the public. Musical accompaniment will be by Jeanne Sasaki.
Don't miss this rare and exciting performance! The performance will be followed by a social hour, and guests are invited to bring snacks and treats to share.
