Omtale: Gilbert and Sullivan
Presenting 40 interviews and recollections, this book is a record of what was said about Sir William Schwenck Gilbert and Sir Arthur Sullivan during and shortly after their lifetimes, by friends, musicians, theatrical managers, singers, actors and actresses, journalists and authors. Gilbert and Sullivan created 14 comic operas - witty satires set to sparkling music - that instantly won a large and enthusiastic audience. Their talents brought them together; their temperaments drove them apart. This composite biography aims to provide the reader with a clear sense of their careers, both as independent artists and as collaborators in one of the most successful enterprises of the Victorian theatre.
