"Gilbert and Sullivan and the D'Oyly Carte Tradition"

This show was first performed for Smithsonian Associates last March. The Associates' publication notes that Gilbert and Sullivan "conspired to write some of the most hilarious, melodious, and enduring operettas in the English language. Their rapier wit spared almost nothing in Victorian society: The rigid class system, government, monarchy, new ideas of equality, lawyers, the Royal Navy . . . were but a few of their targets. Actor and director Nick Olcott, tenor Doug Bowles, pianist Alex Hassan, and soprano Karin Paludan share musical highlights, hilarious anecdotes, and insight into why Gilbert and Sullivan are still beloved."
Tickets: $25 for adults, $10 under 18
