REVIEW HIGHLIGHTS:

This is a colourful riot from start to finish. Ruddigore is one of the best of the operas, a happy spoof of the Victorian gothic genre. The effect, when the cast is as high-spirited and polished as this one, is hilarious… It's well-paced, pleasingly choreographed, elegantly costumed and delightfully sung…The cast, direction and staging are all at the top of their form. This is Gilbert and Sullivan as it should be.  (Miranda Rose, Oxford Daily Info)
