About the event
We had a record attendance at our April meeting when more than 30 members of Godalming Operatic society presented a semi-staged performance of The Pirates of Penzance based on their recent production. They included all the music from the opera which was ably woven together with an effective narration summarising the plot as they went along. The standard of singing and diction was very high and helped remind us of Sullivan's musical mastery as well as the wit of Gilbert’s libretto. Our enjoyment of the concert was further enhanced by the excellent accompaniment in addition to the fact that all the performers were in full costume and took care to act out their roles so well. Particular highlights included a wonderful performance of "Hail Poetry" and the tomfoolery of the police.
Godalming Operatic Society clearly remains very popular with our members as well as guests and we look forward to their return next year to reprise what will be their next major production, Patience.
