Loyolaĺs ôThe Gondoliersö Delights Audiences with A Venetian Carnival of Music and Comedy

Loyola press release - December 15, 2006

(New Orleans)Ś The College of Music and Fine Arts at Loyola University New Orleans will present ôThe Gondoliersö by W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan on Friday, January 19, at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, January 21, at 3 p.m. The colorful musical will be staged in Louis J. Roussel Performance Hall, located on the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Calhoun Street. Gilbertĺs rollicking comedy will be directed by David Morelock and music will be conducted by Carol Rausch. The production will feature a professional orchestra, and 23-member chorus.

The comedy unfolds as the heroine, Casilda, learns about her childhood marriage to the heir to the throne of Barataria. Shortly after the marriage, the infant prince disappeared, purportedly abducted to Venice by the Grand Inquisitor, Don Alhambra. On a quest to establish his daughter as Queen, Casildaĺs father takes off to Venice to find his daughterĺs missing husband- accompanied by his wife, daughter, and Luiz, his drummer (who, unknown to her father, is in love with Casilda). As the story unfolds, two just-married Venetian gondoliers are informed by the Grand Inquistor that one of them has now become the King of Barataria, but they must wait for their foster mother to arrive (she now lives far away) to reveal the true identity of the king. Complications soon arise as the two Venetian wives and Casilda wait to learn which one will become Queen, all the while offering Gilbertĺs satirical outlook on the snobbery concerning class distinctions. By the end, the foster mother arrives and the entwined relationships are resolved to everyoneĺs approval.

Tickets are $40 reserved seating, $25 general admission, $10 students. For tickets, visit http://www.etix.com/ticket/online/venueSearch.jsp?venue_id=3540&cobrand=loy no or contact the College of Music and Fine Arts at (504) 865-3037.
