    The Yeoman of the Guard tickets

    Gilbert & Sullivan’s melancholic operetta

    The English National Opera turns the London Coliseum into the Tower of London for Gilbert & Sullivan’s beloved comic operetta, The Yeoman of the Guard.

    This tale of forbidden romances and unrequited love is the story of unfairly imprisoned Colonel Fairfax, who finds himself falling for Phoebe, the daughter of Beefeater Sergeant Meryll. Phoebe is desperate for Fairfax to be released so they can marry, so she turns to Jack Point for help. Jack is a roving performer who is more than happy to be near Phoebe as his own attraction grows… but will the story end happily?

    The Yeoman of the Guard opera is arguably the most poignant of Gilbert & Sullivan’s collaborative works, with the duo well-known for their topsy-turvy, fantastical plots and happy endings. At the London Coliseum, the show is directed by Jo Davies, with Chris Hopkins conducting the duo’s playful but dark score.

    The Yeoman of the Guard London cast includes Anthony Gregory (Colonel Fairfax), Heather Lowe (Phoebe), Neal Davies (Sergeant Meryll) and Alexandra Oomens (Elsie Maynard).

    Enter The Tower of London and discover one of Gilbert & Sullivan’s most interesting and unique operettas with The Yeoman of the Guard tickets.

    If there's ever a hook, I'm the one that gets hooked. And the hook in this operetta is I Have a Song... More

    If there's ever a hook, I'm the one that gets hooked. And the hook in this operetta is I Have a Song to Sing.. I remembered absolutely nothing else from when I saw it before, but I remembered this. And I adore it. I was singing it all the way home. So, that's me a fan then. I also liked the production, which was heavy on the humour. And by the time the story had ended, some in my group were unsure about the story, which is a bit darker than other Gilbert and Sullivan operettas. And that started ringing bells with me as well. I actually really like that about it - it's certainly bittersweet, with a not-entirely happy ending. You might, in fact, wish a different outcome for just about all the characters. But hey, maybe it's the antidote to all the others they wrote.. I do like a darker shade of story. And this is as fun a production of it as you're going to get! Highly recommended.
