The Fisher, the Fish, and the Wife
A Children's Opera by Bruce Trinkley
This is a modern retelling of the classic Grimm Brothers fairy tale. When the fisherman catches a magical flounder, he is granted seven wishes. the fisherman is perfectly content as he is, but the wife finds plenty of things to wish for. She wishes her husband and herself into a nicer house, and then upgrades that house into a McMansion. Not yet content, the wife makes a wish to become Governer, and then President of the United States. Still not satisfied, she wishes herself into becoming Pope. But when she wishes for the power of God, events take a surprising turn.

Jacksonville Opera Theatre presents a Classic Gilbert and Sullivan!
One of the beauties of a Gilbert and Sullivan operetta is the topical humor, and the ability to contemporarily update references that W.S. Gilbert wrote into the libretto. With that in mind, don’t be surprised when Ko-Ko, The Lord High Executioner of the town of Titipu, the fictional Japanese setting of The Mikado, starts singing that the “cretins from the Music Department” and the advisor to President Meehan are on his list of future executions.
The references in this production by JOT don’t stop there. We’re treated to a chorus of car companies—Suzuki, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Honda, and the like—and mentions of Snooki, text messaging, teenagers with pierced faces and, of course, the Tea Party. Anachronisms abound in Gilbert and Sullivan’s romance about a wandering minstrel who falls for a little maid from school, who is desired by said Lord High Executioner.
Come join us for an evening of side-splitting humor with a Japanese flair!When: 7:30 PM, June 7 & 8, 2013
3:00 PM, June 8 & 9, 2013
Where: Wallace Hall - Gadsden
