Ruddigore or the Witch’s Curse
HOTA and Opera Queensland Present “Ruddigore or the Witch’s Curse”
Lindy Hume’s critically acclaimed production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s Ruddigore or The Witch’s Curse, is coming to the Arts Centre in August 2018, giving Gold Coast audiences the opportunity to jump into the weird and wonderful world of Victoriana. This irreverent romp through marriage, madness and mayhem had Brisbane audiences and reviewers laughing out loud and its colourful bunch of comic characters is sure to resonate with audiences across the state.
Shy and law-abiding, gentleman farmer Robin Oakapple is working up the courage to ask the beautiful Rose Maybud to marry him but he has a dark secret. He is heir to a terrible curse befalling all Baronets of Ruddigore – he must commit a dastardly deed every day or face a tortuous death!
Jam packed with musical gems such as the ‘Matter’ trio and Rose’s ‘Etiquette’ song, Ruddigore, or the Witch’s Curse will tour with an all-star cast including Bryan Probets, Christine Johnston, Kanen Breen, Jason Barry-Smith, Roxane Hislop and Natalie Christie Peluso as Rose Maybud.
This regional tour is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
Sung in English. The performance lasts approximately 2 hours 30 minutes in duration including a 20 minute interval.
