For its 54th Season's main production, The Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Company of Long Island is presenting the classic The Yeomen of the Guard. Considered the famed comic writing teams' closest attempt at Grand Opera, it contains some of the most glorious music in the entire G&S canon. The story revolves around the impending execution of Colonel Fairfax. Phoebe's father, whose life was twice saved by Fairfax, devises a plan to disguise him as a yeoman to help him escape. Meanwhile, the jester Jack Point arrives with his sweetheart Elsie and both are caught up in the escape plans with results unlike any other Gilbert and Sullivan opera. The production includes a cast of over 20 of the area's finest singer/actors, and the critically-acclaimed 18-piece Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera orchestra.
