The first ver­sion of the show pre­miered in 1879 – and the story re­mains a favourite on stages through­out the world to­day.

‘‘It’s so com­pletely ac­ces­si­ble,’’ pro­ducer Ben McDon­ald says.

‘‘It’s one of their fun­ni­est. And it has some of the most ter­rific mu­si­cal mo­ments ever. It’s a very bright, filled with sun­shine, moon­light and ro­mance kind of show, with com­pletely silly peo­ple.’’
