Britain’s Heritage

Gilbert and Sullivan are an historic partnership very much part of Great Britain's heritage. As much loved and revered as William Shakespeare, Charles Dickens, Oscar Wilde, Bernard Shaw etc. Both were knighted for their contribution to the arts, they were the most successful partnership in the history of British Theatre.

The comic operas they wrote between 1871-1896 made their names household words 'As much an institution as Westminster Abbey' said Gilbert! They had established an unique style of light opera that's had a huge influence on the future of British Theatre which continues to enchant audiences throughout the world.

Gilbert and Sullivan were equally as successful in America.
