Season Subscription 2014

In 2014 Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Victoria is presenting another solid set of shows for your enjoyment.

First up is The Grand Duke (at the Alexander Theatre) which is set in the fictional township of Pfennig-Halbpfennig. This was to be the last of Gilbert and Sullivan's collaborations, and somewhat unfairly, is rarely performed. It deserves to be performed with both Gilbert and Sullivan delivering clever writing and beautiful music.

Our middle season has us returning to Knox Community Arts Centre for a joint performance of The Zoo (a Sullivan without Gilbert) and that perennial favourite Trial by Jury. The intimate setting will no doubt enhance your theatrical experience of these two works.

To end the year we present a new, exciting and innovative adaptation of HMS Pinafore set in a futuristic Science-Fiction genre as we present USS Pinafore. Hold tight to your skivvies and set your phasers to laughter as we board this 23rd century Starship. It's G+S, Jim, but not as you know it...

Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Victoria are one of Australia’s oldest performing groups - next year we will celebrate our 80th Birthday. We are one of only two performing arts groups in Victoria specialising in the works of Gilbert and Sullivan, and other works of English musical theatre.
