Gilbert and Sullivan and the Savoy Operas Summary


Gilbert and Sullivan and the Savoy Operas by Michael Ffinch

The names of Gilbert and Sullivan are as irrevocably linked as Laurel and Hardy. The influence of these two extraordinary men on the language and style of the 19th century theatre was unique. In England they changed a whole generation's idea of the theatre, and in America they sparked off a craze for musical comedy which has endured to the 1990s. In this biography, Michael Finch traces the lives of writer and composer, both individually and as a partnership - a partnership which owes much to the creative enterprise and single-mindedness of Richard D'Oyly Carte. He writes of their temporary estrangement, their reconciliation, and, most importantly, discusses each of the operas from conception to performance. Michael Ffinch is a biographer, poet and broadcaster. His book, "G.K. Chesterton" was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize for the Best Biography of 1986.
