The Gondoliers

Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers; or The King of Barataria, played the Savoy Theatre in London from 1889-1891.


Casilda, a young bride and heir to the throne of Barataria, arrives in Venice with her father, the Duke of Plaza-Toro, to join her husband, to whom she was betrothed as an infant in an arranged marriage. But there is a problem: as an infant he was entrusted to a drunken gondolier who confused him with his own son.  Which one of the two young gondoliers is the husband and heir to the throne? As the King has just been killed, both must rule jointly for the time being until Inez, the prince’s former nurse, can be summoned to see which is the rightful king. To complicate the situation, both the gondoliers, Marco and Guiseppe, are married to local girls FIametta and Tessa. And Casilba has fallen in love with her attendant, Luiz. Inez eventually reveals that Luiz was spirited away as an infant and is actually the real king. The gondoliers are happy to step down as co-rulers; Casilba and Luiz are now ready to marry and assume the throne.
