The bad baronets of Ruddigore aren't really evil, but are compelled by a curse to perform daily crimes on pain of death. It's enough to drive a man mad. And when long-dead ancestors get involved, things get really scary.
Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore, or the Witch's Curse gathers evil aristocrats, innocent maids, fawning suitors, and a gang of very frustrated bridesmaids in a collision that questions the nature of evil and the virtues of, well, virtue. Ruddigore is Victorian melodrama amplified and set to music, in a delightful parody of all things horrific and pure.
The Rice Light Opera Society and Hanszen College Theater presented Gilbert and Sullivan's Ruddigore:
