Joanna will be playing the role of Princess Kalyba in Savoynet's production of Utopia, Limited at the Royal Hall in Harrogate. The production is part of the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival 2016, and tickets can be booked from 16th March by following this link.
Utopia, Limited is one of Gilbert and Sullivan's lesser-known and lesser-performed collaborations, so this is a rare opportunity to see a fully-staged production of the work. The opera is about the island of Utopia, whose King and his daughter (Princess Zara) import six men (the 'Flowers of Progress') to remodel the country on English principles.
The Princesses Nekaya and Kalyba are twin Utopian princesses, who are brought up to be prim and proper English young ladies but soon find out that there is a lot more to enjoy about the English way of life than their governess, Lady Sophy, would have them believe.
