1. SAVOY COM­EDY

The Tribune (NZ) - - WELCOME ALONG -

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.
