The Yeomen of the Guard is one of the best and most loved of all the Savoy operas - combining Sullivan's finest score with the great wit and ingenuity of Gilbert's plot. The Cotswold Savoyards present a show that ranges through every emotion - from tragedy to comedy, from romance to heartbreak - all within the traditional setting of the Tower of London. The fabulous double choruses, the commanding Yeomen in their scarlet uniforms, the jibing and jesting of the travelling players and a story of dark dealings and intrigue make for a gloriously entertaining evening for all.
