A young bride arrives in Venice to claim her new husband, heir to the Kingdom of Barataria, only to find that he is one of two lowly-raised gondoliers -- and no one knows which one is the real prince! Can two mere canal boatmen jointly rule a kingdom? Will their nurse from infancy be able to positively identify them? Will the young queen-to-be find herself to be unwilling to marry either one?
Find out all this and more in performances by USA Opera Theatre of Gilbert & Sullivan's operetta "The Gondoliers," taking place April 20, 21 and 22 in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall. The performance will be directed by Dr. Thomas L. Rowell, with musical direction by Jason F. Rinehart.
