Synopsis: With over 200 line drawings by the author. This ultimate book for the millions of Gilbert & Sullivan fans across the country offers the complete text and lyrics of all the operettas of this most original, creative and much-loved musical team.

  • Now both veteran and new fans can catch all the nuances of the quick moving wit, satire and wisdom often missed during performances and on recordings.

  • This book covers all of this dynamic duo's plays including: Thespis, Trial by Jury, H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, The Sorcerer, Patience, Utopia, Limited, The Grand Duke, Iolanthe, Princess Ida, The Mikado, Ruddigore, The Yeomen of the Guard and The Gondoliers.

  • Delightful illustrations by W. S. Gilbert adorn the pages, and an introduction by Deems Taylor brings new insight to the text.
  • From the Inside Flap: In an age where television and movies seem to be taking over popular culture, the sardonic, playful, intelligent, works of Gibert & Sullivan are a refreshing escape.

    The combination of Arthur Sullivan - child prodigy turned noted composer - and William Gilbert - whose career in the military and stint as a barrister predated his true calling as a crafter of caustic wit and dramatic criticism - takes its place in musical theater history alongside creative teams such as Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein, George & Ira Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein & Stephen Sondheim. These timeless mainstays of the stage can be found everywhere, from high school auditoriums to professional G&S companies all over the world; now the complete works, including a preface by the famed music critic Deems Taylor and charming illustrations by William Gilbert, are collected here in one volume. Find your favorite passages in classics such as The Mikado, Pirates of Penzance, Ruddigore and H.M.S. Pinafore. Or, discover and explore lesser known works: Ida; Utopia, Limited; The Yeoman of the Guard and Iolanthe.
