Charles Court Opera launches a mini tour of Express G&S the murder mystery spoof featuring every single G&S opera!
After the company’s smash hit success at Opera Holland Park with ‘The Pirates of Penzance’, Charles Court Opera, the award-winning “masters of Gilbert & Sullivan”, are thrilled to present their side-splitting, OFFIE-nominated, railway murder mystery spoof, which rips through ballads, songs and snatches from every single G&S opera with a cake soaked butter knife!
On this Topsy-turvy journey through the world of G&S, a trio of intriguing travellers (and a pianist) take on multiple characters, uncovering clue upon red herring in this inventive, witty – and frankly
extraordinary – show, which is splattered with favourite moments from the Savoy operas including
‘The Pirates of Penzance’, ‘The Mikado’ and ‘H.M.S. Pinafore’.
