Updated edition of original two Volume work by Ian Bradley
A long overdue update of Ian Bradley's annotated Savoy Operas including the text of the pioneer work 'Thespis'. This one volume re-issue of a two volume work first published over thirty years ago is an excellent volume to keep on hand for all G & S devotees and even those that are not. Lots of commentary and great to see songs that were cut from first performances of operas restored. His introduction comments on changing fortunes of the Operas - including revivals of Utopia Limited, The Grand Duke and Thespis. - and recent US controversy over the MIkado. It is to be hoped that G & S will survive some currents fads and fashions and if it does works like Bradley's will have played their part. Thoroughly recommended.
