About

Whilst William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan were both respected in their own right and during their own time, Gilbert as a playwright and Sullivan as a composer, their collaboration under the management of D’Oyly Carte proved an inspired combination in the late Victorian period. Gilbert’s fantastical plots together with Sullivan’s inventive settings have come to epitomize much of what we consider to be British culture in 19th Century.
 
These excerpts, from 1948–1954, are recorded as they were originally intended, in the great tradition of The D’Oyly Carte Opera Company
