Gilbert & Sullivan Austin
Salon of the Roses: When Victoria Met Tudor
Sunday, October 29 at 3pm
Building on the success of last fall’s Victorian London Salon, we will hold another salon concert, Salon of the Roses: When Victoria Met Tudor, at a beautiful private home off Westlake Drive in October 2023. Refreshments will include some of the most popular treats from the English tea at last year’s Victorian Musical Salon, and will also draw inspiration from the culinary traditions of the Tudor period. Wine and sherry will be served.
Maestro Jeffrey Jones-Ragona is selecting the G&S songs and other musical numbers and
finding the best talent to perform them.
Tickets will go on sale in September; seating will be limited. Private location provided to ticket purchasers.Tickets Learn more Free admission Virtual Event
A Gilbert & Sullivan Christmas Carol
January 7, 2024
This play tells the familiar story of Ebenezer Scrooge’s Yuletide redemption in an unfamiliar way, with Gayden Wren’s book and lyrics (inspired, of course, by Sir W. S. Gilbert) and Sir Arthur Sullivan’s music used to retell Charles Dickens’ timeless tale. This is the play’s Texas debut. We’ll also hold our annual elections.Tickets Learn more Free admission Virtual Event
Trial by Jury and More
We’ll again present the popular one-act Trial by Jury, which brought Gilbert & Sullivan togther in 1875 for what turned out to be a long and successful collaboration. We’ll round out the show with numbers from The Yeomen of the Guard.Tickets Learn more Free admission Virtual Event
The Yeomen of the Guard
2024 Summer Grand Production
GSA returns to the traditional staging of G&S comic operas with its summer 2024 Grand Production of The Yeomen of the Guard. The score is considered to be Sullivan’s finest, and Gilbert’s dialog is full of humor, puns, and one-liners. Set in the Tower of London, the story line is somewhat darker than the usual topsy-turvy G&S plot, concluding with a broken-hearted main character and only two reluctant engagements rather than the usual numerous marriages.
Auditions will be held in February 2024.
