No holiday season is complete without a performance of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and what better way to see it than in the form of an operetta?! Amore Opera has a special treat in store: the Gilbert & Sullivan version, plus highlights from their other works in a show called Scrooge & Gilbert & Sullivan, playing at the end of this month. Upcoming Show: Scrooge & Gilbert & Sullivan from Amore Opera
The classic Dickens tale A Christmas Carol has been transformed into a thrilling new music theatre piece—Scrooge & Gilbert & Sullivan—featuring a new book and lyrics by Nathan Hull. A holiday tradition began last year, this limited-run production will include musical highlights from 11 works by Gilbert & Sullivan, including the beloved Mikado, Pirates of Penzance, and H.M.S. Pinafore. Performed for the first time by Amore last December, Scrooge & Gilbert & Sullivan was an instant hit with audiences of all ages. The musical theatre production, directed by Mr. Hull and conducted by Elizabeth Hastings, features costumes by Cynthia Psoras. The cast includes, as Scrooge, baritones Ray Calderon & Martin Everall; in the role of Jacob Marley, baritone Jay Stephenson; as the Ghost of Christmas Present, soprano Alexis Cregger; and, as Tiny Tim, boy soprano Leo Kogan. Scrooge & Gilbert & Sullivan has been produced by many groups around the country.
The performance is two hours and twenty minutes long.
