The best of Gilbert and Sullivan by Arthur Sullivan( file )

Gilbert's fantastical plots together with Sullivan's inventive settings have come to epitomise much of what we consider to be British culture in the 19th century. Indeed, so great was this institution that The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company is still performing the operettas of Gilbert and Sullivan today, and so are many other companies, both amateur and professional. These excerpts, from 1948?1954, are recorded as they were originally intended, in the great tradition of The D'Oyly Carte Opera Company

The legendary Gilbert and Sullivan troupe, the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company, joined forces with Hollywood for this 1939 Technicolor version of the fabled comic opera, the first complete work by the famed duo to be adapted for the screen, directed by musician and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Victor Schertzinger. The result is a lavish cinematic retelling of the British political satire set in exotic Japan. Nanki-Poo, son of the Mikado of Japan, fled his father's imperial court to escape marriage with Katisha, an elderly lady. Now, disguised as a traveling musician, he meets and falls in love with Yum-Yum, the young ward of Ko-Ko, a cheap tailor in the town of Titipu. Yum-Yum, however, is already betrothed to her guardian, and Nanki-Poo is in despair

The Mikado by Arthur Sullivan( visu )
6 editions published between 1966 and 2003 in English and held by 150 libraries worldwide
The cheap tailor Ko-Ko was deemed Lord High Executioner under remarkable circumstances and faces a great challenge when the Mikado, Emperor of Japan, sends notice that if an execution does not take place within the month, the Town of Titipu will be dishonored and Ko-Ko himself will lose his head. The situation is complicated when Ko-Ko claims to have executed a wandering minstrel who turns out to be the Mikado's son; and to save the lives of his friends and himself, he must win the hand of the sadistic, unattractive Katisha. The opera is considered Gilbert and Sullivan's best work, and never ceases to amaze new generations
