Synopsis


Opera della Luna return to Wilton's with a hysterically funny 'new' comic opera by Jeff Clarke and Stephen Wyatt based on a short story by WS Gilbert and set to a sparkling score of music 'stolen' from Sullivan's rarely-heard but delightfully tuneful orchestral works.


Originally premiered in 2008, when it won four-star reviews and toured nationally, this new staging is revised specially for Wilton's and will include the accompaniment of Opera della Luna's twelve-strong instrumental ensemble.


The story charts the rise and fall of Septimus Belvawney, from his education at Eton (thanks to the financial support of his industrious parents who have made a very successful career writing begging letters to charitable foundations), via his glittering social success as patron of the Society for Providing More Bishops, to his final demeaning downfall, when caught red-handed whilst burgling the home of a celebrated designer of dadoes, clad in only a skimpy antimacassar.
