Gilbert and Sullivan (The Illustrated Lives of the Great Composers Series)by Alan James, Andrew Codd, Opera Synopses
Gilbert and Sullivan go together as naturally as roast beef and Yorkshire pudding--they are as enduring a British institution as Westminster Abbey or Harrods. Audiences laughed at their light-hearted but sharply satirical creations over a hundred years ago and they are still laughing today the world over. But, if you thought that Gilbert and Sullivan went together as well as their words and music do, this revealing and copiously illustrated new biography will have some surprises in store.
