I'm very glad to have re-read this piece, which is what first led me to your blog.

It's the first time I have read something intelligent which has licensed my love of G&S, a love which dare not speak its name as they are so derided generally.

I was taken to two or three shows a year throughout my childhood, all performed by local amateur dramatic societies, and I loved them. I remember some of the songs to this day. As an adult I have only seen Yeoman of the Guard (sublime throughout), Mikado (entertaining with moments of beauty) and Princess Ida (I'm sorry but this one was tedious).

The amateur dramatic and operatic societies seem to shun G&S these days. It's a shame.
