Description

Gilbert & Sullivan Comes to Rockville Centre

 

 

For enduring appeal, the comic operas of Gilbert & Sullivan rank second only to Shakespeare in the history of English-language theater.  But how did W.S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan create the operas that have linked their names in fame for more than a century?  The Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Company of Long Island answers that question in Very Truly Yours, Gilbert & Sullivan, coming to the Rockville Centre Public Library on Saturday, October 20, at 1 p.m.

 

Written and directed by Gayden Wren, with music directed by and accompanied by Thomas Z. Shepard, Very Truly Yours, Gilbert & Sullivan tells the story of the Victorian masters through their own diaries and correspondence, as well as contemporary reviews and memoirs, plus at least one song from each of the 14 Gilbert & Sullivan operas, including H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado.  The show includes both famous favorites and delightful rarities, making it a splendid evening for seasoned Savoyard and complete novice alike, and for audiences of all ages.
