Gilbert & Sullivan Gala Concert
Organised by Rotary Club The Hague Metropolitan in support of Sarnelli House in Thailand, an orphanage for abused and abandoned children.
Charles Court Opera from London UK
The Gala Concert, which will also be performed as part of HM Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in the UK, will bring an evening of entertainment and music from England’s most famous operatic partnership to the stage at the Koninklijke Schouwburg (Royal Theatre) in The Hague, where the evening will include many Gilbert & Sullivan favourites, plus one or two lesser known works.
The funds raised from this one-off performance will allow us to support Sarnelli House, a children's orphanage in Thailand that is dedicated to saving the lives of forgotten children who have been abused or orphaned and others who are living with HIV/AIDS. Sarnelli House provides the safe, healthy, loving and happy environment these children should have had, and aims to give the children medical support and an education to create a future for them as adults.
