Two just-married gondoliers are summoned to Barataria as one of them is the King of that country - but no one knows which one! They travel there to reign jointly and bring peace out of disunity, leaving their wives behind. A fine romp full of life and vivacity. Running time 2 hours 15 minutes inclu. interval. Prior to the Covent Garden Festival. G&S as you've never seen it before: Take Sullivan's great tunes add a little jazz, mix in a handful of love and laughter, stir vigorously, serve hot! A Chicago mafia family descends on the sophisticated surrounding of a London Italian jazz cafe The Gondola! Their aim is to find out which of the sexy Palmierei brothers is the new head of a powerful mob family. They soon find themselves in deeper water then they could ever have imagined possible. Plots and intrigues, love and romance, passion and power - everything is at stake in this madcap, delicious concoction.
