The D'Oyly Carte Interviews

Within the Topsy Turvy Two concert in October 2023, we were lucky enough to have some former D'Oyly Carte members talking from the stage about their time with the Company. I know a number of books have been written about "life on the road" but it was so powerful to actually hear the individuals tell their stories that it inspired me to follow this up and meet as many people as possible and record their memories for prosperity.
