The Grand Duke : Christchurch Gilbert & Sullivan Society
Christchurch Gilbert & Sullivan Society follow up their success last year with The Mikado with The Grand Duke, the last of the famous Savoy Operas.
First performed in 1896, it is set in a middle European Grand Duchy. An old law banning duelling means that differences must be settled by cutting cards. Ludwig, a travelling actor, defeats Grand Duke Randolph and takes over the Grand Duchy. Soon, he is inundated with offers from prospective Duchesses!
The music is a particular delight, notably the famous Sausage Roll Song!
