"When The Night Wind Howls..."

Ruddigore is Gilbert and Sullivan’s 11th operatic collaboration, and, though occasionally overlooked by G&S fans, with its topsy-turvy plot, intriguing characters and beautiful music, it continues to delight audiences almost 140 years after it was first written.

For this production, we have shaken off the standard interpretations of well-known characters and have gone right back to the text. By looking at the piece with fresh eyes, we have made an entirely new piece; utterly faithful to the writing, but none the less containing surprises that will appeal to both experts and virgins of G&S.

Our team of actors, dancers and operatic singers work together to create something engaging, truthful, and moving, without losing any of the joy in the piece. In the words of William Schwenck Gilbert, there is humour in all things. Even in a town where nobody quite understands whether they are alive or dead!
