The Story of Gilbert and Sullivan is a British technicolor film that dramatises the story of the collaboration between W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. Gilbert and Sullivan wrote 14 comic operas, later referred to as the Savoy Operas, which became the most popular series of musical entertainments of the Victorian era and are still popular today. Produced by: Frank Launder, Sidney Gilliat.

    Another great book to add to your Gilbert and Sullivan collection. Had a few marks/notes in the score and cover, but can be easily erased almost good as new. Like some other reviewers have said, this book is tightly bound and can be hard for the book to stay open if newly purchased. I liked the commentary and background story of the Mikado /5(41).   Yes indeed, as was everything else G&S wrote. They wrote, after all, for the well-to-do London theatre goer, And the libretticist of the duo, Gilbert, knew how to tickle their upper-class funnybone. Gilbert’s works typically ridicule the class-bas.
