NHGS Gilbert and Sullivan concert

North Herts Guild of Singers are presenting The Topsy Turvy World of Gilbert and Sullivan on Saturday 18th June 2011 at the Gordon Craig Theatre, Stevenage. Visit the NHGS Society Website here for more details.
'To mark the centenary of WS Gilbert’s death the North Herts Guild of Singers, with invited soloists, present a romp through the witty satire of Gilbert and the incomparable melodies of Arthur Sullivan. Gilbert poked fun at all that was self-important in Victorian England. The mighty, the rich, the lawyers, the Lords - all were cleverly mocked. Even melodrama, magic, feminism and the aesthetic movement were not spared his sharp wit. Their topsy-turvy tales have left us with a rich legacy of operettas that are still regularly performed and loved throughout the world.'
