Wonderful singers! The Duke and the Diva did a fabulous job! The first half was slow, but the second half picked up.

About the Ticket Supplier: The Gilbert and Sullivan Very Light Opera Company

The Gilbert & Sullivan Very Light Opera Company was founded in 1979, by Dick Fishel and Jim Hart. That year, the company produced its first operetta, Gilbert & Sullivan’s one act, Trial by Jury.

Since then, in its thirty-plus year history, the company has presented fully staged productions of all thirteen of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas, ranging from perennial favorites, H.M.S. Pinafore, The Mikado, and The Pirates of Penzance, to the lesser-known The Grand Duke and Utopia, Limited.

The company has also gone outside the Gilbert & Sullivan repertoire and performed Orpheus in the Underworld by Jacques Offenbach, The Zoo by B. C. Stephenson and Arthur Sullivan, as well as a concert version of The Rose of Persia by Basil Hood and Arthur Sullivan, and a semi-staged production of the comic Gilbert and Sullivan parody, The Da Vinci Coda.

In addition, the company regularly appears with the Minneapolis Pops Orchestra, at the Lake Harriet Bandshell, in the summer, to present a concert version of one of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas.
