Lyric Theatre Presents The Gondoliers
Performance at the San Jose City College Theater
Join fellow alumni for a lively performance of GIlbert & Sullivan's last great success, The Gondoliers. By setting the work comfortably far away from England, in Venice, Gilbert was emboldened to sharpen his satire at the nobility and the monarchy itself, making for sparkling humor we can still enjoy today. And the libretto inspired Sullivan to write some of the brightest and most melodic music.
The Lyric Theatre is a community theater group which has been dedicated to preserving and presenting our vocal musical heritage for over 40 years. A pre-performance talk by the directors will explain the history of the show, their interpretation of it, and perhaps some of the issues they had to address to bring the show to the stage.
Free parking is available adjacent to the theater or at the multi-level parking structure.
