Gilbert And Sullivan Abridged
Celebrate the masters of musical comedy at the Rose with Gilbert and Sullivan Abridged - an evening of parody, wit and song which squeezes all fourteen Gilbert and Sullivan operettas into one zany, tipsy-turvy night.
Whether you are a Gilbert and Sullivan aficionado, a passing fan or you are not even sure you know who they are, come along and enjoy highlights of everything from the Gilbert and Sullivan classics to rarely performed gems.
Gilbert and Sullivan are acknowledged as having influenced everybody from Oscar Wilde, Noël Coward and Andrew Lloyd Webber in the UK, to Tom Lehrer in the USA.
Their comedic style of stinging wit and cutting irony is a discernible vein of British comedy that runs through Monty Python via Private Eye to television series like Yes, Minister and Blackadder. Gilbert and Sullivan poke fun at the establishment while managing to be entirely delightful.
