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!
