Pinafore, The Pirates of Penzance, The Sorcerer, Patience, Utopia, Limited, The Grand Duke, Iolanthe, Princess Ida, The Mikado, Ruddigore, The Yeomen of the Guard and The Gondoliers. In an age where television and movies seem to be taking over popular culture, the sardonic, playful, intelligent, works of Gibert & Sullivan are a refreshing escape. The combination of Arthur Sullivan – child prodigy turned noted composer – and William Gilbert – whose career in the military and stint as a barrister predated his true calling as a crafter of caustic wit and dramatic criticism – takes its place in musical theater history alongside creative teams such as Richard Rodgers & Oscar Hammerstein, George & Ira Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein & Stephen Sondheim. These timeless mainstays of the stage can be found everywhere, from high school auditoriums to professional G&S companies all over the world; now the complete works, including a preface by the famed music critic Deems Taylor and charming illustrations by William Gilbert, are collected here in one volume.

H.M.S. Pinafore Libretto. William Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan. Dover Publications. 2000. ISBN 0486272680 (paperback).
A lighthearted burlesque of Japanese culture and the vagaries of love, and one of the most widely admired of all the Gilbert and Sullivan operettas.

The Mikado Libretto. William Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan. Dover Publications. 1992. ISBN 0486411141 (paperback).
Among the most popular of the many well-loved works of Gilbert and Sullivan, H.M.S. Pinafore; or, The Lass that Loved a Sailor was written to be sung and acted on the stage; nevertheless, its sparkling lyrics and dialog shine no less brightly from the printed page. Pinafore satirizes the unlikely plot twists of grand opera and Victorian social rectitude with the tale of Josephine, the captain's daughter, and Ralph, the lowly sailor who seeks her hand. A comic gem, full of saucy banter and inventive rhymes.
