The Pirates of Penzance, Gilbert and Sullivan's classic musical comedy of mistaken identity, comes swashbuckling to the screen with all the laughs, songs and stars that made it a long-running Broadway smash! Kevin Kline reprises his Tony Award winning role along with Angela Lansbury, Linda Ronstadt, George Rose and Rex Smith in the story of a roguish pirate king and his adventurous young charge who explore the coastline in search of treasure and romance. It's a fresh, funny and colorful extravaganza that's the very model of a modern movie musical

The complete annotated Gilbert and Sullivan by W. S Gilbert( Book )

25 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in English and held by 1,440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan provides the complete text of all the Gilbert & Sullivan operas which are still performed today, together with extensive annotations covering 'lost' songs, alterations and additions, obscure allusions, production points, and comments of interest. Each opera has an introduction which places it in its context and provides a potted history of performances. No other book provides such extensive commentary on the texts of the Savoy Operas nor provides such a source of innocent merriment to fans of the incomparable Victorian duo. The complete text of each opera, including stage directions, is given on the right-hand page, and on the left (keyed in by line numbers) are notes. These give such information as the identity of a real-life person appearing or mentioned as a character, wordings that were different in the original edition (the one sent to the Lord Chamberlain for licensing), changes made for the first American performance, glosses on technical terms (e.g. legal terms), literary references, cross-references to similar items in other Savoy operas, comments from first-night critics, and more. Previously published by Penguin in two paperback volumes, this new edition contains two new libretti (The Grand Duke and Utopia Limited), a new Introduction including Notes for Further Reading, new introductions to each opera, as well as numerous corrections to the original edition."--Jacket

"25 years previous to the action of the opera, Iolanthe, a fairy, had committed the capital crime of marrying a mortal. The Queen of the Fairies had commuted the death sentence to banishment for life--on condition that Iolanthe must leave her husband without explanation and never see him again. Her son, Strephon has grown up as a shepherd, half fairy, half mortal...the entire House of Lords is enamored of Phyllis [as is Strephon. The opera focuses on the drama of the privledge to marry Phyllis...]"--Argument

The best of Gilbert & Sullivan by Arthur Sullivan( )

48 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 878 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gilbert's fantastical plots together with Sullivan's inventive settings have come to epitomise much of what we consider to be British culture in the 19th century. Indeed, so great was this institution that The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company is still performing the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan today, and so are many other companies, both amateur and professional. These excerpts, from 1948?1954, are recorded as they were originally intended, in the great tradition of The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company
