About the show: Amidst the constant danger of the relentless Blitzkreig, another drama is unfolding right in the Tower of London. In order to keep his scheming cousin from inheriting his fortune, Captain Fairfax, marries Elsie Maynard, a strolling singer, an hour before his execution. But when he is sprung from jail by Sergeant Meryll and his daughter, Phoebe, he becomes involved in a tangle of love, jealousy, and ambition, for which more than one person will have to pay the price. Yeomen is considered the nearest that Gilbert and Sullivan, working together, came to grand opera.
