Royal Holloway College Savoy Opera
Society 1971 - 1983
I was a member of the Savoy Opera
Society (or SOS) at Royal Holloway College
between 1971 and 1982,and
was in the chorus for the
Grand Duke 1975
HMS Pinafore 1977
The Yeomen of the Guard 1979
The Mikado 1981
as well as helping with scenery
for The Sorcerer 1972
In those days, performances were held in the Picture Gallery on a
temporary stage,assembled for the show and packed away afterwards.
Here are some links to photos and scans
the programmes for some of these shows.
I would be interested in any other photos and programmes from the
period, which I might add to this gallery.
The society is still going strong, and
I recently saw the excellent 2008 performance of The Mikado.
