11-May-2019 Come & Sing Gilbert & Sullivan – The Gondoliers

Saturday, 11 May 2019 at 12:45–17:30

Venue: St Mary’s Creative Space, St Mary’s Hill, Chester.  CH1 2DW

Tickets: Singers £12, Children & Full-time Students £5, Score hire £2, Audience £5. (Ticket price includes tea/coffee and home-made cake)

It’s been a while since Chester Bach Singers trod the boards with G & S but they invite you to swell the chorus as Gondoliers or Contadine in one of the duo’s most tuneful creations. Italian opera joins with farce in this story of one of two babies stolen in infancy who may (or may not, it turns out) be a King – but which of the brothers is it? Dance a Cachucha with members of CBS, who will also delight again as soloists, and narrate the story, with Catherine Barnett conjuring up Venetian magic from the piano as Martin Bussey aims to make sure you catch the last park-and-ride gondola.

Tickets available online, or by post by sending a cheque made out to Chester Bach Singers to: Chester Bach Singers, The Firs, Wervin, Chester CH2 4BP. Tel: 01244 383746 Email:
