Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Grand Duke

The Sudbury Savoyards present
Gilbert and Sullivan's
Saturday, March 4th, at 2 PM
Registration Deadline:  Tuesday, February 28th
Tickets - $20

In The Grand Duke, Gilbert and Sullivan come full circle, back to the theme of their first collaboration, Thespis:a troupe of actors taking political power. The plot hinges on the misinterpretation of a 100-year-old law regarding statutory duels (decided by drawing cards). The baffled leading man of the troupe, Ludwig, spearheads the rebellion against the hypochondriac, miserly Grand Duke and becomes engaged to four different women before the plot is resolved. The frugality and phoniness of the wealthy classes and the nobility is lampooned and, as in Princess IdaThe MikadoThe Gondoliers, and Utopia, Limited, the foreign setting emboldens Gilbert to use some particularly pointed satire.
