A Feast Of Gilbert And Sullivan, Congress Theatre, Eastbourne, July 19
This show had a winning formula, with the 32-piece British Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, conducted by Anthony Kraus, and former singers of The D’Oyly Carte Opera Company performing favourites from all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas.
Soprano Yvonne Patrick, mezzo soprano Louise Crane, tenor Nicholas Sales, baritone Jeremy Peaker and bass Richard Woodall were outstanding as they did justice to Gilbert’s outlandish rhymes and Sullivan’s magical music.
For Woodall it was a triumphant return to his home town and he proved to be an imposing Mikado.
Songs were often interspersed with witty stories and anecdotes, with the comedic Peaker and engaging Woodall in their element as they delivered them.
It was a good mix which ensured an evening to remember for Gilbert and Sullivan fans.
