STAGE TUBE: A Look at Gilbert and Sullivan's SORCERER, Now Through 7/27

‚Äč

The Sorcerer made its debut in 1877 and was the first Gilbert and Sullivan collaboration in which the two had complete control of the production. It was highly successful for its time, which encouraged the author and composer to continue working together and expanding the possibilities of satiric operetta. The Sorcerer introduced the comic duet, the patter song, the contrapuntal double chorus, the tenor and soprano love duet and the soprano showpiece aria that became staples of all the G & S productions that followed.

The Sorcerer returns to G & S this season, check below to watch a preview of the show and click here for more info.
