Ruddigore; or, The Witch’s Curse, originally called Ruddygore, is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W.S. Gilbert. It is one of the Savoy Operas and the tenth of fourteen comic operas written together by Gilbert & Sullivan. Sir Despard Murgatroyd is a man under pressure. He has inherited a witch’s curse forcing him to commit a crime a day or die in agony. So it’s a huge relief when shy Robin Oakapple is revealed as his long-lost elder brother – true inheritor of the curse.
