It is the 16th century, and Colonel Fairfax has been sentenced to death for sorcery. Determined to outwit his cousin and accuser, he is determined to marry before his death so that his inheritance will pass to anyone else. But as he and his friend Sergeant Meryll plot, their lives become irrevocably entwined with Jack Point and Elsie Maynard, two strolling players.
A dark and serious opera, The Yeomen of the Guard is regarded as having one of the best, if not the very best, of the Savoy opera scores.
