Lyric Theatre presents Gilbert & Sulliva's Ruddigore, or The Witch's Curse! Robin Oakapple, a young farmer in a Cornish fishing village, is in love with proper village maiden Rose Maybud, but is too shy to tell her so.

When Robin's younger brother Despard comes to town, Robin's secret is revealed and he must assume his rightful place and the burden of performing one evil deed each day. Should he shirk his duty, the ghosts of his ancestors will descend upon him, and he will die a most painful death.
Gilbert & Sullivan's takeoff on popular melodrama is packed with unforgettable characters and music.
