Not long until our production of Gilbert and Sullivan's sparking Venetian comedy opens at the QMT, Hitchin. One of their most popular operettas, we are very excited about this production which is full to the brim with wonderful singing and rather a lot of lively dancing! Never has the Cachucha been so cachuchaed.
The two most eligible bachelors in Venice, Marco and Giuseppe, are told that they were muddled up as young boys by their foster parent, with one of them being the new King of Barataria. They are delighted with the prospect and agree to share the job of being King in their new world until they can find out who is the real King. But it all gets very complicated when the Duke and Duchess of Plaza Toro announce that their beautiful daughter, Casilda, was married to the King when she was a baby. The problem is that Marco and Giuseppe have just got married to two local girls – Gianetta and Tessa – and Casilda is in love with her father’s servant, Luiz. How will they ever untangle the knot?
