Illyria: The Gondoliers at Bridport Millennium Green, Mountfield

Open Air Theatre @ Bridport’s Millenium Green, Mountfield

Tickets: Adult £18, Concs £14, Child £8

An enchanting rendition that promises an evening of laughter, music, and pure entertainment.

Set in picturesque Venice, this lighthearted operetta whisks audiences away to a world of romance, mistaken identities, and comedic chaos. 

The story revolves around two charming gondoliers, Marco and Giuseppe, who suddenly find themselves elevated to the status of royalty. Tasked with choosing their queen from a bevy of beautiful women, hilarity ensues as the true identity of the rightful queen becomes entangled. 

With Gilbert’s witty Lyrics and Sullivan’s catchy melodies, Illyria brings the vivacious characters to life, captivating audiences with their impeccable comedic timing and exuberant performances. As the plot thickens and the absurdity reaches its peak, love triumphs, and the gondoliers discover that happiness lies not in noble titles but in the simplicity of true love.

Gates open: 6pm. Running time approx. 2hr 20m (inc 20m interval)

Bring your own seating/rug, suitable clothing. You are welcome to bring a picnic.
