*Press Release from CCPA*

Coralville – Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Gondoliers will be presented by the University of Iowa School of Music. Get ready for an evening of toe-tapping tunes and dances galore!

Two gondoliers from Venice discover that one of them is the rightful heir to the throne of Barataria, and until it is revealed which is the king, they reign jointly. Madcap antics ensue, with lively, memorable tunes, memorable comic characters, and uplifting, joyous dances. With Gilbert’s razor sharp wit satirizing period class distinction and the monarchy, plus Sullivan’s colorful score featuring endless singable melodies, this is an evening to delight and enthrall.

Music by Arthur Sullivan
Libretto by W.S. Gilbert
Directed by Nicholas Wuehrmann
Music directed by Willliam LaRue Jones

Tickets are available through the Hancher Box Office at 1-800-HANCHER.
