JSU Music Production of “The Gondoliers” to Air on TV Channel 24
Jacksonville State University’s Opera Theatre production of
Gilbert and Sullivan’s “The Gondoliers” will air on TV Channel 24 on Thursday, 29 June at 10:30 p.m. The production was
presented in Mason Hall Performance Center earlier this year in May and recorded live.
Directed by Dr. Nathan Wight with the orchestra conducted by Mr. Jeremy Stovall, “The Gondoliers” is a tale of confused
identity involving the young heir to the Kingdom of Barataria living, unknown to all, as a Venetian gondolier, possible
bigamy and a delightfully happy ending where everything is finally straightened out. The production entertained audiences
for a two-week run of performances. The clever words of William Gilbert are cunningly paired with the charming and
tuneful music of Sir Arthur Sullivan to create a timeless classic.
If you missed a live performance, you may re-live the excitement in this TV broadcast.
