    Centuries ago, Sir Rupert Murgatroyd, the first Baronet of Ruddigore, and all his heirs were cursed by a witch to commit a crime every day, or perish in inconceivable agonies.

    In this parody of Victorian Gothic melodrama, Sir Ruthven, the latest Baronet flees the curse to live in disguise as the honest Robin Oakapple. However, betrayed by his best friend, Ruthven must once more take up his rightful title, and with it the curse of his forefathers.

    How can he satisfy the obligations of the curse and stay true to his conscience? Can he win back the heart of the woman whom he loves? Why do the spirits of the dead continue to stalk the land and torment the living?

    With a deformed villain, a haunted family mansion, a madwoman roaming about the countryside and a troupe of professional bridesmaids, this riveting romp set to some of Sullivan’s finest music is a sure-fire hit.
