Notes & Reviews:

The Mikado made fun of English bureaucracy, thinly disguised by its Japanese setting. Enjoying over 650 performances at the Savoy Theatre, this work remains Gilbert & Sullivan's most frequently performed work, and has been translated into numerous languages. HMS Pinafore was the first international hit, satirizing the rise of unqualified people to positions of authority. Trial by Jury pokes humorous fun at the law and the legal profession, based on Gilbert's own experiences as a barrister. Patience concerns two rival "aesthetic" poets, each of whom is in love with Patience, the village milkmaid. The last of the duo's great successes, The Gondoliers, contains some of their most sparkling and tuneful music, and plenty of dancing.
