The Gondoliers and Utopia, Limited open in Glasgow

D’Oyly Carte Opera’s co-production with Scottish Opera has opened in Glasgow at the Theatre Royal. After a delay of almost 20 months, both productions received their premieres last week in Scottish Opera’s base theatre. Audiences have been very enthusiastic to be finally returning to live theatre.

Both productions have been universally well-received with four-star reviews almost across the board.
