About The Yeomen Of The Guard - English National Opera

The Tower of London is the scene for a tangled web of melancholy and mirth in Gilbert & Sullivan’s beloved operetta, The Yeomen of the Guard. The arrival of a travelling troupe of performers sparks forbidden romances, fantastical plots and unrequited love.

The unjustly imprisoned Colonel Fairfax has a mutual attraction to the young daughter of the righteous Sergeant Meryll, one of the titular Beefeaters. Phoebe wishes Fairfax be released so they can have the wedding she desires, and enlists the help (and attraction) of Jack Point, a roving performer. A classic Gilbert and Sullivan story ensues, with all the chaos that comes with it – but not necessarily the happy ending we expect from the duo…

Visionary Jo Davies returns to the London Coliseum to direct, with designs by acclaimed theatre designer Anthony Ward. G&S veteran Chris Hopkins conducts the ENO Orchestra, with a score that – despite being darker in tone – remains characteristically playful of Arthur Sullivan.

Book your tickets to the Tower, to see one of the most beloved Gilbert & Sullivan’s operas, The Yeomen of the Guard.
