Gilbert and Sullivan’s operas performed at Oundle

One of Gilbert and Sullivan’s best-loved comic operas is being performed in Oundle this week.

The Mikado is currently being performed by the Oundle Gilbert and Sullivan Players at the Queen Victoria Hall in West Street.

The show contains a huge range of songs, including A Wand’ring Minstrel I, Behold the Lord High Executioner, Three Little Maids from School, Braid the Raven Hair and The Flowers that Bloom in the Spring.

A spokesman said: “The recently refurbished Queen Victoria Hall is now a most comfortable venue for our productions and features both a sweet stall and a bar which offers a range of alcoholic drinks or a warming tea or coffee on a cold winter’s evening.

“Our production features the usual strong cast of principals and choruses guided by the skilled experience of our producer Gill Potts and supported by a first class orchestra under the direction of David Milsted.”

Performances take place at 7.30pm, today, tomorrow and Saturday. Tickets cost £10 each. They can be bought at Oundle in Stitches in Market Square, Oundle, by ringing 01832 273830 or by emailing p.weetman@btopenworld.com.
