Big Sing: The Sorcerer

Sunday 21 May 2023

Her Majesty’s Theatre
Grote Street, Adelaide

Big Sing joins State Opera South Australia for the finale of the G&S Fest in a concert performance (with scores) of Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Sorcerer.

All singers are invited to join a community chorus in Her Majesty’s Theatre for this enjoyable but rarely performed Gilbert and Sullivan opera – a madcap piece brim full of tongue-twisting patter, elegant madrigals and charming choruses.

This event will be huge fun to be part of, and choristers will have access to a downloadable score and learning tracks for all the choruses.

If your participating choir or singing group is willing to open rehearsals to others, please advise our Music Director at

Registration is free, but choristers will need to print their own scores. Officeworks charges approximately $25 to print the chorus score (spiral bound with colour cover).

Proposed major chorus rehearsals (subject to change):

  • Wednesday 10 May 7:00-9:30 pm State Opera South Australia, 216 Marion Rd, Netley
  • Thursday 18 May 7:00-9:30 pm State Opera South Australia, 216 Marion Rd, Netley
  • Sunday  21 May 1:00-3:30 pm Her Majesty’s Theatre, Grote Street Adelaide

We will inform registrants of any extra rehearsal opportunities early in the new year.

The Chorus is currently full. You may register for the waiting list and we will notify you if places become available.
