HMS Pinafore by W S Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan
9 May 2020 7:30 PM to 17 May 2020 2:00 PM
Rockdale Town Hall
448 Princes Highway, Rockdale NSW 2216
'HMS Pinafore' is one of the most popular works from the G&S repertoire. In typical G&S style, it pokes good-natured fun at Victorian society, in this case the British class system, the Royal Navy and patriotism. It includes such favourites as 'Never Mind the Why and Wherefore,' 'I'm called Little Buttercup', the stirring 'For he is an Englishman' and Sir Joseph Porter's satirical 'When I was a Lad'. As always, there's a surprise twist to the tale with a happy ending to suit all.

The Magic Flute by W A Mozart
21 November 2020 7:30 PM to 29 November 2020 2:00 PM
Rockdale Town Hall
448 Princes Highway, Rockdale NSW 2216
For the first time ever at Rockdale, this classic tale of overcoming severe trials is one of Mozart's best-known and most-loved operas. 'The Magic Flute' can be enjoyed on many levels, as it is a fairy-tale in which surface triviality veils profound significance and even includes a dose of Masonic symbolism! Thrill to the Queen of the Night's aria, laugh at Papageno and rejoice at Tamino and Pamina's eventual triumph of good over evil. Sung in English.
