Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta The Yeomen of the Guard comes to the Proms. It is a tale of joy and despair abounding with tongue-in-cheek satire, and is arguably the pair's finest Savoy production. With the BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Singers under the baton of the inimitable Jane Glover, the cast boasts a stellar line up of British singers. Directed for the Royal Albert Hall stage by the acclaimed Martin Duncan.
