Join Ridgewood G&S at our Fall 2021 production of The Yeomen of the Guard, darkest and most emotionally engaging of the Savoy Operas. When strolling troubadours Elsie Maynard and the jester Jack Point (who is in love with her), arrive at Tower Green, Colonel Fairfax is awaiting execution on a false charge of sorcery. When a reprieve fails to arrive, Sergeant Meryll, whose life was saved by Fairfax, plots his escape. Unaware of the plan, Fairfax’s last request is to die a married man, to secure his estate from the hands of his cousin and accuser. Fairfax secretly marries the blindfolded Elsie who expects to be a well-paid widow within the hour. Fairfax miraculously escapes his fate and chaos ensues.
