The curtain rises on the market square of Speisesaal where Ernest Dummkopf's acting troupe is rehearsing for a production of the Greek tragedy ‘Troilus and Cressida’. Beneath the theatrical veneer, a conspiracy is afoot among the thespians to overthrow Rudolph, the Grand Duke. However, this is inadvertently betrayed… With conspiracy, intrigue and a statutory duel, ‘The Grand Duke’ is sure to be an exciting show.
The show is being performed as part of the 22nd International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in Harrogate. We are still looking to fill a few spaces in the chorus so if you would like to be involved in the show, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know!
