Event

Trial By Jury
"Trial by Jury" is the only Gilbert and Sullivan opera written in one act, and is their only opera that contains no spoken dialogue. It is considered by some to be the most perfectly constructed of the G&S operas, and is a little gem of wit, cleverness, and charm. It was first produced in 1875 at London's Royalty Theatre, where it was a runaway hit with audiences.

"Trial by Jury" will be a fully-staged chamber production of the entire opera, with a full cast and chorus of outstanding performers, elegant costumes, and magnificent grand-piano accompaniment. Artistic Director Ralph MacPhail, Jr. and Musical Director Jeffrey Jones-Ragona lead the production of this melodic and comedic delight. Bill Hatcher is Production Manager.

The story takes place in a courtroom where a breach of promise of marriage case is being tried, with the judge and legal system the objects of lighthearted satire. Can you imagine a more delightfully propitious setting for a lighthearted satire of the British legal system (and of gentlemen who behave like cads)? One wonders how Gilberts own short experience as a barrister provided fodder for this little treasure!
