Proms at …Alexandra Palace: Trial By Jury
A concert performance of Gilbert & Sullivan’s one-act comic masterpiece Trial By Jury in the magnificent theatre of Alexandra Palace. The Victorian theme continues with music by Sullivan’s contemporaries Stanford, Parry and Coleridge-Taylor, conducted by Jane Glover.
The magnificent theatre at Alexandra Palace originally opened in 1875 – the same year that Gilbert and Sullivan’s one-act operetta Trial by Jury was premiered. In this special ‘Proms at …’ event, Jane Glover conducts a concert performance of this Victorian comic masterpiece in the Palace’s theatre as its ambitious new refurbishment reaches completion. A first half of music by Sullivan’s contemporaries explores that favourite G&S theme of love and marriage.
Alexandra Palace Theatre is undergoing an extensive restoration. This performances will be a rare chance to experience the Theatre before it opens to the public and as construction nears its completion.
