Simon Theobald will present the life of Rutland Barrington,
bass-baritone in the original company and sing some of the songs
first sung by Barrington.
Many of us have enjoyed Simon's singing, acting and speaking
Rutland Barrington was a long-standing member
of the original D'Oyly Carte Opera Company and created several of
the roles in the operas. In addition, he was also a writer and performer
outside of the world of G&S. Simon Theobald has enjoyed a varied
performing career with amateur theatre and opera groups. He has
accepted an offer from the Manchester branch of the Gilbert & Sullivan
Society to present an interesting study on the life of Rutland Barrington,
and sing a few of Barrington's songs.
