We are delighted to present our new streaming service – G&S Opera TV. Your one-stop-shop for the very best Gilbert & Sullivan available on the web. This new streaming service is just the ticket for a great night in, with a fabulous selection of entertainment available on demand. We have included some of our favourite productions in our initial launch, with plenty more to come over the next few weeks.
You can watch G&S Opera TV on all internet-connected devices – laptops, PCs, tablets, smartphones and smart TVs. Not only do we have high definition productions filmed over the last couple of years, but we are also digitally-remastering our archive material. Step back in time and enjoy fantastic performances from the early days of the Festival – just as if you were right there in Buxton Opera House.
Filmed at the very first Festival, this Semi-Staged production of the Yeomen of the Guard boasts a star-studded cast of Original D’Oyly Carte members such as the inimitable Kenneth Sandford, Michael Buchan, Alistair Donkin, Lorraine Daniels, Patricia Leonard and more!
The second most watched film is the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company’s 2019 production of The Gondoliers. Directed by John Savournin, this incredibly popular production made its debut in Buxton Opera House, before heading to Harrogate and off on the 2019 Tour. Starring Simon Butteriss, Steven Page and Matthew Kellet, this is just the ticket for a cheerful night in!
Our third most popular production is, of course, The Pirates of Penzance performed by the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company in 2019. This all-time favourite is directed by Festival Favourite Richard Gauntlett and features a stellar cast, including Mae Heydorn, Mathew Siveter, David Menezes and more!
