Ruddigore, or The Witch's Curse, is the ninth of the collaborations between Gilbert & Sullivan. Set in Cornwall, the play revolves around the theme that the current Baronet of Ruddigore, whoever he may be, is cursed to commit a crime each day in order to live. The comic twists in which the brothers Murgatroyd, Despard and Ruthen, switch roles and face the contempt of their ancestors for not upholding the family curse, is played out amidst a chorus of villagers and the world's only troupe of professional bridesmaids. The Savoy performances feature a full professional orchestra that brings Sullivan's grand music to life.

Handicap seating is available.
