The memorable songs from Gilbert & Sullivan’s iconic operettas are not just funny: they are deliciously, wickedly funny, poking at the underside of just about every respectable institution of society, from parliament to the judiciary to the police to the Royal Navy, and above all, exposing the absurdities of the British class system and the pretensions of those who flock to embrace the latest fashions.

The memorable songs from Gilbert & Sullivan’s iconic operettas are not just funny: they are deliciously, wickedly funny, poking at the underside of just about every respectable institution of society, from parliament to the judiciary to the police to the Royal Navy, and above all, exposing the absurdities of the British class system and the pretensions of those who flock to embrace the latest fashions. Sullivan’s music is as sublime as any opera, but more than that, it is utterly enchanting: joyful, witty, sparkling and irrepressibly tuneful. The songs are more than memorable, they instantly make themselves part of our lives.
