GILBERT & SULLIVAN Masters of Mirth & Melody

The gay collaborators who produced the most famous comic operas in the English language are here presented in a successful addition to the biography shelf. Gilbert and Sullivan were as different as two men could be. Colorful, distinctive, individualistic, they were tied together by financial success -- only to split on a minor issue late in life. The exciting and diverse early years, the Victorian world they conquered, the men and women who shared their successes, are here depicted in colorful incident and gay snatches of verse and melody that makes this good reading for Savoyard devotees of all ages.
