WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Love triangles abound - with resolutions romantic, comic and tragic - in this tale of intrigue and betrayal set in the foreboding Tower of London. A political prisoner is framed for a crime he didn't commit and catastrophe and hilarity ensue as others attempt to release him from the devious plot and secure his freedom. Featuring a lovesick jailor, a lovely young woman trapped in a marriage to an unknown man, and a jester who has lost his sense of humor, this dark comedy is the closest thing to grand opera in the Gilbert & Sullivan repertoire. Combining poignancy and tragedy with humor to an extent not seen in any other Gilbert libretto, and boasting some of Sullivan's finest work, Yeomen is considered the best of the canon by many G&S fans.
