★★★★★ ‘This is a magical production from Charles Court Opera, and G&S fans shouldn't miss it!’ London Living Large
★★★★ ‘Savournin's direction is most imaginative, always at the service of both librettist and composer, yet always witty and occasionally poignant.’ LondonTheatre1

'The masters of G&S in small spaces’
make a welcome return to Wilton’s with their brand new production of one of the first G&S operas, The Sorcerer. This rarely performed masterpiece showcases Gilbert at his topsy-turvy best, with sumptuous music from Sullivan that will set your toes tapping as if by magic.

Based on Gilbert’s story An Elixir of Love, it tells the tale of Alexis, a man obsessed with the idea that all should fall in love. He enlists a ‘Family Sorcerer’ of J.W. Wells & Co. in London to administer a love potion to the entire village - via a teapot - and soon mayhem ensues…

This highly anticipated production promises to be a magical occasion, featuring some of CCO’s finest performers. This is the first time that CCO has produced The Sorcerer, directed by John Savournin, and musically directed by David Eaton, both G&S specialists.

The title role will be played by G&S specialist Richard Suart (Ko-Ko, ENO’s The Mikado). Richard has sung in all the G&S operas - except this one! - so this will be his debut in the role!

This is one show not to miss, so book early!

Press for CCO:
