Read more about the opera Geneviève de Brabant

The famous gendarmes' duet may be the only piece to remain in any way familiar, but Geneviève was one of the most popular operettas in its time, returning year after year. Being slightly shorter than the other pieces on the tour, it was followed by an afterpiece, on this occasion Trial By Jury, giving the company's Don José, Durward Lely, his first experience of the Gilbert and Sullivan idiom that would be his bread and butter for the next few years.

Additional tour dates are to be added.
