Musical comedy requires quick wits and singing ability, much like competing on a game show dressed as the Phantom of the Opera. Celebrate skilled songsmiths with today's Groupon: for $70, you get full-price seating to four Gilbert and Sullivan operettas staged by the Lyric Theatre of San Jose at the Montgomery Theater (a $144 value). This Groupon is valid for one seat at the 8 p.m. performance of each of the shows. Click here for shows and dates.
Celebrating its 40th season, the nonprofit Lyric Theatre regales the public with extravagantly staged productions of classic light operas. Feast ear-buds on sweet sounds performed by a volunteer troupe of opera-trained actor-singers, a full chorus, a 24-piece live orchestra, and one extremely skilled conductor's baton. The Lyric Theatre's The Sorcerer begins the quartet by mixing Victorian comedic stylings with Bollywood-inspired staging. The Gondoliers, Gilbert and Sullivan's lively tale of royal mix-ups, makes a melodic mockery of the British social system. The nautical chuckle-fests H.M.S. Pinafore and season-closer The Pirates of Penzance tickle funny bones of all ages with peppy maritime music and historically accurate knot-tying jargon.
