Tracy Notes About This Show
Our costumes for this Gilbert and Sullivan satire are based on the originals as we viewed them in the D'oyly Carte collection in London.
First performed at the Opera Comique, London, on 23 April 1881, it moved to the 1,292-seat Savoy Theatre on 10 October 1881, where it was the first theatrical production in the world to be lit entirely by electric light. Henceforth, the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas would be known as the Savoy Operas, and both fans and performers of Gilbert and Sullivan would come to be known as "Savoyards." (Wiki)
