Gilbert & Sullivan Discussion Group

Gilbert & Sullivan
The Wit and Wisdom of Gilbert's Words
Join us as we explore Gilbert's librettos of the G&S operas.
Thursdays at 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
Jan 20 - Feb 17, 2022

If you have enjoyed any of Gilbert and Sullivan's operettas, you might want to explore the wit and wisdom of William S. Gilbert's librettos in detail. Gilbert was one of the most brilliant wordsmiths of the English language in the 19th century, being compared to Shakespeare in the quotability of his words. In addition he was a journalist, poet, lawyer, soldier, dramatist, and actor. The class will read and discuss Gilbert's librettos (online or in print), view selected excerpts of performances of G&S songs, and learn of his contribution to the English language musical theater.
