A semi-staged performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Venetian opera, which contains some of their most sparkling and tuneful work.
Two recently married Venetian gondoliers are informed by the Grand Inquisitor that one of them has just become the King of "Barataria", but only their foster mother, whose whereabouts are unknown, can confirm which one. As Barataria needs a king to put down unrest in the country, they travel there to reign jointly, leaving their wives behind.
The Gondoliers discover that the King was wed in infancy to Casilda, the beautiful daughter of the Spanish Duke of Plaza Toro, and so it seems whichever of them is king is an unintentional bigamist. Casilda, however, is secretly in love with one of her family’s servants.
The Gondoliers’ wives arrive, wanting to know which of them is queen, and receive an unexpected answer
