Sister Abigail

posted Apr 29, 2016, 8:16 AM by Cambridge University Gilbert and Sullivan Society
Sister Abigail (Week 4, 18th-21st May, ADC Late Show) is looking for chorus members and orchestral players!

This irreverent new comic opera tells the story of sisters Caroline and Abigail - one a Princess, the other a novice. An official visit causes their paths to cross, just as Abigail and her fellow novices resolve to escape the cloister and return to their former lives. With melodies merry and melancholy, and an all-female cast, Sister Abigail is the best opera about two nuns in a bath you will ever see!

The orchestra will require relatively low rehearsal commitment (one two hour call and a dress rehearsal on the 11th May), and is currently in need of strings, wind and brass.

Contact the Musical Director, James, on jwm51@cam.ac.uk with your name and instrument or voice part.
