The Yeomen of the Guard or The Merryman and His Maid

July 19, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

The Yeomen of the Guard or The Merryman and His Maid

The setting of this operetta is laid in the Tower of London.  The plot concerns Colonel Fairfax, a gentleman, soldier and scientist, who has been sentenced to be beheaded in an hour on a false charge of sorcery.  To avoid leaving his estate to his accuser (a cousin), and with the help of the Lieutenant of the Tower, Fairfax secretly marries Elsie Maynard, a strolling singer.  Yeoman ImageThe bride agrees to be blindfolded during the ceremony and expects to be a well-paid widow in an hour.  With the help of the Meryll family, Fairfax escapes, throwing the Tower into confusion and the astonished Elsie (and her mentor, the jester Jack Point, who loves her) into despair.  But Fairfax, disguised as Leonard Meryll, woos Elsie, and after a number of plot complications are worked out, she falls in love with Fairfax and leaves Jack Point broken-hearted.
