Nicholas to star in The Yeomen of the Guard at Tower of London

by -

Paul Nicholas is to take the lead role of Jack Point in three special performances of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Yeomen of the Guard, which will be staged at The Tower of London to mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Henry VII.

He will be accompanied by a cast of more than 50 singers and backed by the full Carl Rosa Opera Orchestra. Commissioned for the Continental Airlines Tower Festival, it will be the first production of The Yeomen of the Guard to be performed in the Tower of London’s moat since a 1978 production which starred Tommy Steele.

Playing alongside Nicholas will be several members of the Carla Rosa Opera including Gareth Jones, Charlotte Page and Bruce Graham.

The production will run from September 13 to 15.
