Love, Betrayal and Fantastical Gothic elements make The
McGill Savoy Society’s latest production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Ruddigore
An ancestral curse looms over the latest baronet of
Ruddigore: Sir Ruthven Murgatroyd, (currently living under the name Robin
Oakapple in a small village), must commit a daily crime – on pain of death!
This curse is a major hindrance to his courtship of the very
proper Rose Maybud. To complicate matters further, she has just captured the
heart of Robin’s foster-brother, freshly returned from his life at sea…
Will Robin manage to hide his true identity and how long can
he defy the ancestral curse?
Throw into the mix, a bevy of curse – enforcing ancestors, a
wild mad woman, a faithful retainer as well as, detailed sets and costumes, epic
pastoral choruses, mock-Wagnerian orchestrations, and frenzied patter songs and
you get Gilbert and Sullivan’s wry send-up of gothic melodrama that ultimately reveals that Love conquers all!
The McGill Savoy
society was founded in 1964 and is a community theatre that is devoted to
the production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s great works, known as the Savoy Operas.
They function as a non-profit, high-profile student
theatre group, supported by a large and active patron base, the SSMU,
sponsors from the Montreal community, and its audience. Their annual show is
held within the halls of beautiful Moyse
Hall (McGill Arts Building) with a cast of skilled performers and musicians
from different walks of life. Casting
for future productions is usually held in the fall.
