Description

Gilbert & Sullivan Comes to Bethpage

In the history of musical theater, no body of work has been so long or so fervently admired as the comic operas of Gilbert & Sullivan, which are second only to Shakespeare in the history of English-language theater.  Now the Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Company of Long Island is bringing its original revue, The World According to Gilbert & Sullivan, to the Bethpage Public Library on Sunday, February 18, at 2 p.m.

 

Written and directed by Gayden Wren, with music directed by and accompanied by Thomas Z. Shepard, The World According to Gilbert & Sullivan is a merry travelogue through the world of the Savoy operas, from Venice to the South Pacific island kingdom of Utopia, from Japan to the Spanish island of Barataria, from the German principality of Pfennig-Halbpfennig to, of course, London, England.  The show features at least one song from each of the 14 Gilbert & Sullivan operas, including H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado, with both famous favorites and delightful rarities making it a splendid evening for seasoned Savoyard and complete novice alike, and for audiences of all ages.
