Greensboro College Opera Workshop Presents “The Gondoliers” Nov. 3-4
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro College’s Opera Workshop presents Gilbert & Sullivan’s comic opera “The Gondoliers,” 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Nov. 3-4, in Gail Brower Huggins Performance Center in Odell Building on campus.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for seniors and may be reserved by calling Cathy Jansen at 336-272-7102, ext. 5242.
The opera focuses on the fictional kingdom of Barataria, where the heir to the throne was mixed up as a child with the son of a gondolier.
