New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players Present "The Grand Duke" - Peter Norton Symphony Space
Add to Calendar 13-11-2011 13-11-2011 15 New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players Present "The Grand Duke" The tangled plot of "The Grand Duke" (or "The Statutory Duel") involves an acting troupe engaged in a conspiracy to overthrow the miserly and mean-spirited grand duke of a small German duchy. When the troupe's leading comedian, Ludwig, accidentally discloses the conspiracy to the Grand Duke's detective, only by means of a rigged statutory duel, fought with cards rather than weapons, is a mass execution avoided -- with Ludwig installed as Grand Duke for a day. Then a series of weddings ensues for Ludwig, the first to the love of his choice and thereafter to women with legally binding and over-riding claims on the unwitting new Grand Duke, winding up with the arrival of The Prince of Monte Carlo and his daughter The Princess who was betrothed to The Grand Duke in infancy. Through his invention of roulette, The Prince has escaped from poverty and come to claim The Grand Duke's hand for his daughter. When it is revealed that the rigged statutory duel, won by an ace over a king, was incorrectly ruled upon because the statute explicitly states that the ace shall count as the lowest -- not the highest -- card, all are restored to their proper loves and a truly joyous multiple wedding celebration occurs. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=97760 Peter Norton Symphony Space true DD/MM/YYYY
