Presented by State Opera South Australia, G&S Fest is the only event of its kind in the southern hemisphere and celebrates the founding fathers of British comedy opera, Gilbert and Sulivan. G&S Fest brings together some of the best bits of very British humour and song over two action-packed weekends in May 2023.
Major highlights of the festival include crowd favourites Pirates of Penzance and H.M.S. Pinafore at Her Majesty’s Theatre, a quirky immersive presentation of aperitif-sized opera (45 mins) Trial By Jury at the Supreme Court, and a ‘Big Sing’ community version of The Sorcerer which will bring together dozens of G&S and choral enthusiasts for one massive performance.
A well-rounded program of family-friendly operatic works, sacred music, and one-off-events includes some special draw cards for die-hard fans, such as a Mother’s Day High Tea with Stuart Maunder, exclusive movie screenings, a quiz night and a Lads&Lasses Long Lunch, where some of Australia’s most beloved G&S stars of all time will be sharing behind the scenes stories, anecdotes and a delightful meal.
