Gilbert and Sullivan are the undisputed masters of comic operetta and the proud parents of the modern musical. That their works are more in demand today than when they were created over a century ago is ample proof of their lasting brilliance. We are pleased to offer reduced orchestrations based on the D'Oyly Carte originals for productions of H.M.S. PINAFORE, THE MIKADO, or THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE. H. M. S. PINAFORE answers the burning question of who, among equals, is the most equal, but only when the men of the mismatched couples discover they were switched in their cradles as infants. Obviously the authors will stop at nothing to delight and amuse - and again they succeed!
Libretto by W. S. Gilbert; Music by Arthur Sullivan; Orchestration by Peter Murray
