Catskill Choral Society, concluding its 46th season, comes to Walton Theatre with “Tripping Hither, Tripping Thither: A Celebration of Gilbert and Sullivan.” The D’Oyly Carte Opera Company staged the comic operas of W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan at the Savoy Theatre in the 1880’s. In all, Gilbert and Sullivan wrote fourteen operas that continue to influence musical theatres today through the “topsy-turvy” premise and humor set by the words of Gilbert and the music by Sullivan. Catskill Choral Society, under the direction of G. Roberts Kolb, returns to the Walton Theatre with 65 + members and soloists Colby Thomas and David Kolb performing selections from such operas as Pirates of Penzance, The Mikado, The Grand Duke, Utopia and HMS Pinafore.
