GIlbert & Sullivan’s The Sorcerer

Music by Sir Arthur S. Sullivan  –  Lyrics by William S. Gilbert

Directed & choreographed by Jessica Harika
Music Direction by David Schmidt

Six performances only at El Teatro of El Museo del Barrio, 1230 Fifth Avenue at 104th Street, New York City.

Magical mix-ups and mayhem ensue in Gilbert & Sullivan’s first full-length operetta, which features Sullivan’s most buoyant and festive score and giddy Upstairs/ Downstairs complications from Gilbert. Wishing his wedding guests to discover true love as he has, young Alexis Pointdextre hires a sorcerer to spike the tea at his engagement party with a powerful love potion. Alack! Every possible mishap occurs, and Alexis and the sorcerer must race against the clock to reverse the magic before wedding bells ring for the wrong lovers – including Alexis’ own betrothed! Will they succeed? Come find out!
