One of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular shows, The Gondoliers, comes to the King’s Theatre next week courtesy of Edinburgh’s Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

A romantic comedy set in Venice and the imaginary Spanish kingdom of Barataria, The Gondoliers features opulent costumes, energetic dance routines, a beautiful wedding and more than a splash of humour.

Two cheeky Venetian gondoliers, Marco and Giuseppe Palmieri, find themselves thrust into another world when they discover one is actually heir to the throne of Barataria.
