why watch the yeoman of the guard

The stage is set in the Tower of London, where Colonel Fairfax is imprisoned on false charges. Phoebe, a daughter of one of the Yeomen, conspires with the newly arrived jester Jack Point to ensure the Colonel's freedom before the axe falls and she can have the wedding she desires. As paths cross, identities are mistaken, and new romances bloom, can the duo reach their happy ending in the ensuing chaos?

The operetta will be presented by the English National Opera, one of the two principal opera companies in London. Although one of Gilbert and Sullivan’s darker and emotionally entangling pieces The Yeoman of the Guard still imbibes wit and humor. Director Jo Davies and conductor Chris Hopkins team up to breathe new life into this incredible operetta, along with a powerful cast including Anthony Gregory, Heather Lowe, Alexandra Oomens, and Neal Davies.
