About this event

Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society returns to West Road Concert Hall for the fifth year in a row, this year performing the brilliant Ruddigore.

A terrible curse condemns each baronet of Ruddigore to commit one crime per day or perish in inconceivable agony. Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd has gone into hiding to avoid the curse and lives in a Cornish village where, disguised as the young farmer Robin Oakapple, he has fallen in love with the fair Rose Maybud. His prospects are ruined when his foster brother Dick Dauntless betrays him to Sir Despard Murgatroyd, the acting baronet. Ruthven is forced to take on the baronetcy and its curse, enforced by an entire portrait gallery of his ghastly ancestors.

Ruddigore is a hilarious operatic satire of Victorian melodrama. Despite the sinister backdrop, you’ll find all the laughs and silliness you’d expect from G&S, combined with some of Sullivan’s most majestic music.

'a thoroughly enjoyable evening of laughs and great music'
