The Gilbert & Sullivan Light Opera Company of Long Island presents The World According to Gilbert & Sullivan, an original musical revue written and directed by Gayden Wren.
Featuring songs from all 14 of Gilbert & Sullivan’s operettas, the revue is presented in a whimsical travelog format, by a congenial narrator acting as tour guide on a whirlwind journey through a “topsy-turvy” world populated by a cast of eccentric characters inhabiting far-flung locations.
It includes pieces not only from Gilbert & Sullivan’s most popular works (The Pirates of Penzance, HMS Pinafore and The Mikado), but also equally rousing and enchanting songs from their other, less well-known shows. Long time G&S fans and newcomers alike will be delighted by the fanciful situations, Gilbert’s clever lyrics and, of course, Sullivan’s beautiful music.
If you would like to book any of our shows for your local library, community center, place of worship or a private function, please call:
