C.L.O.C. presents The Gondoliers

C.L.O.C. presents The Gondoliers this week at Highfield Theatre. The College Light Opera Company (C.L.O.C.) is an independent Screen Shot 2015-07-22 at 9.15.31 AMnon profit educational theatre producing light opera and musical theatre. Since 1969, C.L.O.C. has provided training to up and coming musicians, singers, dancers and technicians. Today, it is the largest resident theatre company in the United States. C.L.O.C. presents nine operettas and musicals with full orchestral accompaniment each season. All performances take place at the historic and charming Highfield Theatre in Falmouth, less than a half-mile from Captain’s Manor Inn.

Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers; or The King of Barataria, is an opera that first premiered in 1889. The story of the opera concerns the young bride of the heir to the throne of the fictional kingdom of Barataria who arrives in Venice to join her husband. It turns out, however, that he cannot be identified, since he was entrusted to the care of a drunken gondolier who mixed up the prince with his own son. To complicate matters, the King of Barataria has just been killed. The two young gondoliers must now jointly rule the kingdom until the nurse of the prince can be brought in to determine which of them is the rightful king. Performances are daily at 8pm with a matinee on Thursday at 2pm. Click here for ticket information.
