“Savoy Faire” is a Gilbert & Sullivan ensemble of featured artists from Ridge Light Opera of New Jersey, who are focused on community outreach. The primary goal of Savoy Faire is to educate and enlighten audiences of all ages while providing top-notch entertainment. Ridge Light Opera is artist in residence at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Basking Ridge, where we present an eclectic variety of musical offerings throughout the year ranging from Opera to Broadway to A Cappella.
This program will feature highlights from several operettas by William S. Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan. This English duo wrote 14 operettas over a span of 25 years beginning in 1871. Gilbert & Sullivan operettas are light comic operas featuring fanciful, topsy-turvy worlds. Imagine a world where fairies rub elbows with British lords, flirting is a capital offense, gondoliers ascend to the monarchy, and pirates turn out to be noblemen who have gone wrong!
