    “Tis a great day tonight for the Irish, for the cause we’ve fought for and died. And the time is soon to be when you’ll see Old Ireland free! ‘Tis the land of our love and our pride!”

    An exciting early 20th Century operetta from a prodigious maestro, Eileen is Victor Herbert’s grand Irish ode to his maternal homeland. GSOV is thrilled to be producing a fully staged season utilising a boutique instrumental ensemble and a stirring new libretto courtesy of VHRP Live, the premiere US company for the music of Victor Herbert.

    On the eve of Irish revolution, patriot Barry O’Day meets the winsome Eileen in France and falls in love. Torn between passion and duty, his sire land pulls his heart and he leaves, unsure if he’ll ever see her again.

    Years later Barry journeys to his home in Sligo Bay ready to lead the rebellion against British occupation with the help of sympathetic English aristocrat, Lady Maude, the current owner of the O’Day lands. Imagine his surprise when Eileen turns out to be Lady Maude’s niece! Love rekindles, but with danger all around will their romance survive?

    Directed by versatile auteur Suzanne Barton, with musical direction from multi-award nominee Kent Ross, and featuring choreography and performers from the Cosgriff Irish Dancing School, this superb production will make its Australian premiere at The Kel Watson Theatre in Burwood East.

    With the Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Victoria Players
