The Princeton High School Choir will perform Gilbert and Sullivan’s twelfth operetta, “The Gondoliers” on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 19 and 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Princeton High School Performing Arts Center.
The concert is a fundraiser for the group’s trip to Italy and Slovenia in February, 2013.
Filled with satire and love triangles, Gondoliers follows the story of a young bride who travels to Venice to marry the heir of the throne of Barataria only to find that he cannot be identified, since the drunken gondolier entrusted with the heir’s upbringing mixed up the heir with his own son.
Gondoliers will introduce students to Venice in anticipation of their trip, as well as introduce audiences to these young performers' diverse musical talents.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and are available in advance at the box office in the lobby of the Princeton Public Schools Performing Arts Center, at the rear of Princeton High School, on the corner of Walnut Lane and Franklin Avenue. The box office is open on one hour prior to performances.
