1. SAVOY COMEDY
Operatunity Daytime Concerts bring Gilbert & Sullivan to town for a live best-of assortment.
If you’ve ‘‘got a little list’’, place Operatunity’s The Many Faces of Gilbert & Sullivan upon it.
For 25 years, the pair dominated Victorian entertainment with their comic Savoy Operas.
A century and more after their hey-day, the works of WS Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan and their quirky characters, remain popular.
Operatunity’s five visiting vocalists present excerpts from different operettas and include wellloved songs such as Three Little Maids from The Mikado; Poor Wan- dering One from Pirates of Penzance; and Take a Pair of Sparkling Eyes from The Gondoliers.
Soprano Kerry Scurr is joined by Radio NZ Concert’s Mary Newman-Pound, actor and singer Robert Enari, Alex Milligan and John Cameron, with accompanist Paul Carnegie-Jones.
The greatest hits of Gilbert & Sullivan is at Life Church, 590 Featherston St, 11am, Wednesday October 21.
