It may be small by global standards, but the Gilbert and Sullivan weekend at Musatelier is the biggest G&S event in this area. As G&S is bewildering to most French locals, we rely on people coming from elsewhere - mainly from England.

This year we planned Yeomen of the Guard for the late spring, but so many participants have had to drop out that it has been postponed to the autumn. The date is yet to be confirmed.

There is also a change of piece - we'll be performing Patience.

You'll have to provide your own score, but you can download a free one.

Friday evening: sort-out music and parts, eat together.

Saturday: practices and time off for sight-seeing;
evening meal either at a local restaurant or pizza delivery.

Sunday: run-through twice, the second time with a small audience of friends and neighbours.

Some of the solos are taken, though we're particularly short of baritones. Chorus are very welcome, as the opera calls for twenty lovesick maidens and matching Dragoon Guards, so at least four of each would be nice.

It won't be staged, and we don't expect people to learn the parts off by heart (though that would be good!) but some attempt at costumes would be appreciated, and there will be moving around. Possibly even some token scenery.

Visitors are welcome to arrive before and stay after. There is some sleeping-space in the house, and rooms with helpful neighbours; people who prefer/can afford plusher accommodation have a choice of nearby chambres d'hôtes and gîtes.
