New York City
Two men who could be king. Two women who would be queen. And two class-crossed lovers who’ll be together at any cost. It all adds up to too much fun in this sparkling show (also called The King of Barataria) that capped off Gilbert and Sullivan’s careers.
When a nurse switches two babies at birth, it serves as the catalyst for a series of complications that span several decades, several social classes, and several kingdoms! Chock-full of comic characters, incredible plot twists, and spectacular choreography, Gilbert’s satire of social snobbery is matched only by Sullivan’s spectacular score in this production.
