As a run up to Law Day, the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta “Trial by Jury” was performed by members of the Rochester Lyric Opera on April 25 and 26 in Courtroom 303 at the Hall of Justice. The operetta tells the story of a breach of promise in a marriage case, with jury, judge and counsel for the plaintiff and defendant appearing.
Arranging the production in a courtroom proved to be a challenge because of the large volume of cases and number of judges and hearing officers presiding over those cases. But both performances were well received by standing room-only crowds.
