Notes and Editorial Reviews

Now here is a treat. Sir Malcolm Sargent in Glyndebourne conducting a fabulous British cast in the most beloved of Gilbert & Sullivan Operettas. The tunes are irresistible and this is a classic performance. This is one of the first stereo recordings of the Gilbert & Sullivan canon which was greeted with great critical acclaim upon release. It still sounds wonderful!

First-rate singing distinguishes this vintage recording of the popular comic operetta, full of irresistible tunes and marvelous wordplay.
