Index. 8vo, illustrated tan card covers, laminated. “Say the name D'Oyly Carteand two other names are likely to spring to mind in its wake: the names of Gilbert and Sullivan. It was in 1875 that Richard D'Oyly Carte brought "G. & S." together for their first great operatic success, the one-act piece T rial by Jury. The D'Oyly Carte Company subsequently presented all the otherGilbert and Sullivan operas as they were written, and continued to present them to a loyal public for more than a century. This is the first book to tell the D'Oyly Carte story in full. Based on extensive research, it sets the Company in its context decade by decade and brings it to life as the remarkable organisation it was.” - from the back cover. Very good. 30.00
