Gardens Theatre: The Gondoliers

Step into the enchanting realm of Venice as Illyria presents an outdoor theatre performance of ‘The Gondoliers’.

Join us for a delightful operetta filled with romance, satire, and uproarious comedy. Follow the charming gondoliers, Marco and Giuseppe, as they find themselves thrust into the spotlight of royalty, tasked with choosing their Queens. When the true Queen appears demanding to know her rightful husband, the stage is set for a hilarious escapade where love conquers all.

Experience the brilliance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s witty lyrics and catchy melodies brought to life by Illyria, captivating audiences worldwide for over three decades.

Set against the backdrop of nature, this outdoor performance promises an evening of laughter and music, and an uplifting feeling.

Remember to bring your own seating or rug, dress appropriately for the weather, and your favourite snacks for an enjoyable experience.
