The Sorcerer 2018

Constance and her mum are not sure about the vicar's sermon!



'Welcome joy, adieu to sadness.'


Alexis extols the use of love potions.


'My name is John Wellington Wells.'


I'm really not sure I should be helping to brew this potion!


The villagers gather for Alexis and Aline's engagement party.


'Now to the banquet we press!'


The potion begins to take effect.


For once they're actually not supposed to be watching the conductor!



'I know not why I love him so.'


'Love me; I'll stick sunflowers in my hair.'



'I go to my family vault!'


'Die thou!'


'Oh my adored one!'



'Beloved boy!'


'Now to the banquet we press.' (again)

New concert, new choruses (new to us, anyway)

We have opted this year for a concert of G&S pieces, rather than a complete opera, in the words of your MD 'to show you off to attract audiences and singers by a) the high standard of singing in KB and b) the variety of music that we sing'.

There will be music from old favourites:
The Yeomen of the Guard
The Pirates of Penzance
Ruddigore
The Mikado
HMS Pinafore
The Gondoliers and
The Sorcerer

plus some from three operettas new to KB:
Utopia Limited
The Grand Duke and
Princess Ida

We had a high old time last week learning 'Eagle High' from Utopia Ltd (sorry my pun use isn't up to Gilbert's standard!), 'Won't it be a Pretty Wedding' from The Grand Duke, and 'Walls and Fences Scaling' from Princess Ida.

Next week we will recap these and revisit the wonderful dual chorus 'Welcome Gentry' from Ruddigore, so if you own a Ruddigore score please bring it with you.
