We have been delighted to hear how our new streaming service G&S Opera TV has brightened many an evening for our viewers around the world and thought we would take this opportunity to share the most popular productions so far…
Filmed at the very first Festival, this Semi-Staged production of the Yeomen of the Guard boasts a star-studded cast of Original D’Oyly Carte members such as the inimitable Kenneth Sandford, Michael Buchan, Alistair Donkin, Lorraine Daniels, Patricia Leonard and more!
The second most watched film is the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company’s 2019 production of The Gondoliers. Directed by John Savournin, this incredibly popular production made its debut in Buxton Opera House, before heading to Harrogate and off on the 2019 Tour. Starring Simon Butteriss, Steven Page and Matthew Kellet, this is just the ticket for a cheerful night in!
Our third most popular production is, of course, The Pirates of Penzance performed by the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company in 2019. This all-time favourite is directed by Festival Favourite Richard Gauntlett and features a stellar cast, including Mae Heydorn, Mathew Siveter, David Menezes and more!
