The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan

Edited by Ian Bradley

The Complete Annotated Gilbert & Sullivan provides the complete text of all thirteen of the Savoy operas still being performed, including H.M.S. Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, and The Mikado. Each work is thoroughly annotated, with the text, including stage directions, given on the right-hand page, and the notes on the left. The annotations cover everything from the identity of real-life people mentioned in the opera, to clear explanations of obscure words and phrases and other literary references, to comments from first-night critics, and much more.
