The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan

The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan are a performing arts phenomenon. Wildly popular when first produced, they are if anything even more popular today. The Complete Annotated Gilbert and Sullivan provides the complete text of all thirteen of the Gilbert and Sullivan operas still being performed today, including H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, and The Mikado. Each work is thoroughly annotated, with the text, including stage directions, given on the right-hand page, and the notes on the left. The annotations provide a wealth of information--everything from the identity of real-life people mentioned in the opera, to clear explanations of obscure words and phrases (such as legal terms) and other literary references, to comments from first-night critics, and much more. In addition, Bradley has written a marvelously informative introduction to the book as well as superb introductions to each piece, describing the genesis of the work, its performance history, and other fascinating tidbits. A goldmine of information, The Complete Annotated Gilbert and Sullivan will delight the hearts of Savoyards everywhere.

Synopsis:

This volume provides the complete text of all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas which are still performed today, together with annotations covering "lost" songs, alterations and additions, obscure allusions, production points, and comments of interest. Each is placed within its historical context.

Ian Bradley is one of the world's leading authorities on Gilbert and Sullivan, the editor of a previous annotated edition of the Savoy Operas, and a consultant to the D'Oyly Carte Company on historical matters.
