or The King of Barataria
Music by Arthur Sullivan
Libretto by William S. Gilbert
Venice: City of mystery, intrigue and singing gondolier...
The Gondoliers is a tale of two humble gondoliers and the flower girls they love. Before they can embark on married life, the Grand Inquisitor reveals that one of them is the king of faraway Barataria, but nobody knows which. Matters are further complicated when they learn that whichever one is king was married as an infant to an impoverished Spanish princess. She, of course, secretly loves another. How will this romantic and political muddle be solved? With witty dialogue, bursts of colorful dancing, and some of the most joyous music ever written.
