Operatic extravaganza at Riverhead theatre

ONE of the UK’s most diverse small-scale opera companies presents a gala concert of Gilbert and Sullivan this Saturday, July 16.

Charles Court Opera brings an evening of words and music from England’s most famous partnership to the stage at Louth’s Riverhead Theatre, where the evening will include many G&S favourites plus one or two lesser-known works.

Charles Court Opera formed in 2005 as a platform for young talent and since then has produced many operas, musicals and pantomimes, as well as numerous concert performances around the country and overseas, in venues ranging from an Islington pub theatre to the National Concert Hall in Dublin.

Tickets for the Louth concert cost £13 (under 18s £7) and are available from the box office on 01507 600350.
