We are very sorry that we have had to cancel our April performances of The Gondoliers owing to the spread of the coronavirus.
Those who have already ordered tickets will receive refunds.
We anticipate rescheduling the performances for later this year, and we will notify you when we set new dates.
We sincerely apologize for this cancellation, but we believe it is in the best interests of the health of our audience and cast.

“The Troupers Light Opera gave lower Fairfield County a real treat this past weekend: Gilbert and Sullivan’s infrequently performed Ruddigore, a diamond in the rough if ever there was one. It is performed again this Saturday, April 13. Don’t miss it!”
As in H.M.S. Pinafore last season, the cast here is particularly strong. David Richy, as Niccolù, and Brett Kroeger, as Amiam, effortlessly fill the hall with their ebullient sound. Richy’s voice is more evenly placed over his vocal range, giving it a fine sheen; once again Kroeger is totally and delightfully square into the G & S style, both vocally and dramatically, radiant as the sun and moon she sings about. Under the direction of Keith Miller, each creates a believable character, but they also partner well with each other through the many tests their relationship must endure over the course of the opera.
