The celebrated diva Miss Cynthia Fortitude and her long-suffering accompanist Miss Gertrude Rallentando are back! These stars of the brilliantly original NZ comedy, The Legend Returns, make a bold shift into Baroque opera featuring Gertie’s magical harpsichord, a sorceress from Hokitika, a furious media storm and other theatrical paraphernalia.
Cynthia gallantly holds the evening together, even when Gertie’s infatuation with all things Japanese threatens to derail their 50 year partnership. A cornucopia of music and comic delight!
TEN DAYS ONLY Dec 13 – 23rd
Tues – Sat 7.30pm
Circa Theatre, Wellington
