RUDDIGORE (The Witch’s Curse)

April 18, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$4 – $8

An opera about ghosts, witches, and curses – oh my! Long ago, a witch’s curse was cast upon the family Murgatroyd, commanding that each successive Baronet of the Murgatroyds must commit a horrible crime every day – or die in agony. Gilbert and Sullivan’s opera Ruddigore opens, revealing that the one true Baronet, Sir Ruthven, has gone into hiding, allowing his younger brother, Despard, to assume the title … and the curse!  However, the rightful heir is soon discovered – and as family ghosts display their disgust with the situation, Sir Ruthven attempts to find a way to lead the honest life and marry the woman he loves. Please join FSC’s Opera Theatre and Orchestra as they perform this wonderful Gilbert and Sullivan gem!
