Ruddigore is now regarded as one of the gems of the Gilbert and Sullivan canon.

 

A satirical take on the Victorian Melodrama genre, Ruddigore's zany plot has it all - ghosts, witches, curses, disguises, and even a wicked villain who tries to make off with their fair maiden.

 

All of the Baronets of the locale are under a terrible curse enacted by a witch a long time ago. Each of the successive Baronets must commit some kind of crime every single day, or else they will die in terrible agony.

 

Ruddigore is an ensemble tour de force with a wealth of fun character roles.
