Gilbert and Sullivan

Under the baton of the inimitable Jane Glover, the BBC Concert Orchestra and BBC Singers perform Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta, The Yeomen of the Guard.

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.
