We are very excited to be welcoming for the first time, Charles Court Opera, one of the leading and most versatile chamber opera companies in the UK, with their second performance of the season.

Charles Court Opera presents a Hammer Horror-inspired production of Gilbert and Sullivanʼs Ruddigore. Ruddigore is a spooky spoof on melodrama, with mad damsels, moustachioed villains and a gallery of deceased ancestors all given a spark of electricity and plenty of punch by these ‘masters of G&S’. 

CCO is one of the leading lights in the recent reinvigoration of the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, and this production is directed by the companyʼs artistic director John Savournin

‘one of the finest G&S actor/directors of the present day’ Daily Express. Music director David Eaton.

They can sing, dance & make you laugh until you cry: portmanteau G&S at its very best. Donʼt miss this firework!’ The Arts Desk
‘Cheerfully tongue-in-cheek… singing that is light and flexible…’ Evening Standard
‘If you are on the prowl for an uproariously funny operetta with a fabulous cast, then look no further than Charles Court Opera.’
‘Their performances are simply brilliant… full of nuance and humour’ everything theatre
