Ruddigore G&S 2017

  • Show Information

The witch’s curse: one that forces any man who bares the title of Baronet of Ruddigore to commit a crime every day, or die. Surely this curse won’t come back to haunt Robin Oakapple (a simple farmer) as he tries to woo the virtuous Rose Maybud. Unless, he is revealed to be Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd, the rightful Baronet of Ruddigore, who faked his own death to escape the accursed title. With the help of his trusty manservant Old Adam, Robin will have to face challenges from some of the people closest to him; Richard Dauntless, his foster-brother, who also seeks Rose for himself, his real brother, Sir Despard, who for twenty years assumed the title of Baronet of Ruddigore, and a meddling picture gallery of ancestors. This supernatural operetta will have you laughing from start to finish.
