Audiences in Dublin will now be able to revel in this witty Victorian melodrama, which is considered one of Gilbert & Sullivan's most inventive works. First performed by Opera North in 2010 and then again last year and directed by Jo Davies, Ruddigore received widespread critical acclaim and was declared a ‘gem of a discovery'. The tale centres around Sir Despard Murgatroyd, a man under pressure. He has inherited a witch's curse forcing him to commit a crime every day or die in agony. So it's a huge relief when shy Robin Oakapple is revealed as his long-lost elder brother - true inheritor of the curse.
But what will Rose Maybud, Robin's fiancée, make of this dastardly revelation?
