In each of these book vivid narrative, interspersed with the most popular music themes, and profused colored and black and white illustrations, capture the charm, wit and sparkle of these famous Gilbert and Sullivan operas. From The Gondoliers

The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company is an organization devoted to the works of Gilbert and Sullivan. Every year, this company tours Great Britain, and every other year it visits the United States and Canada, presenting the gay operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan exactly as the author and composer planned them.

While the original stage directions have been faithfully followed, the costumes and scenery for the D'Oyly Carte productions are new and colorful. It is the company's purpose to present Gilbert and Sullivan with all the beauty that modern stage pictures can command—and it is our hope, in this series of books, to bring you the delightful atmosphere that countless audiences have found in these operettas.
