Unlike today's society, residents of Victorian England had stringent rules of conduct to deal with and a class structure that rigorously prescribed each person's station in life. Out of this structure came two men who turned British society upside down and almost immediately became international successes. Gilbert & Sullivan first collaborated in 1871 and went on to write 14 operettas that satirized British society and lambasted the pomposity of the rich and famous. This lecture will explore the relationship between these two men with videos that bring their works to life. Participants will enjoy Gilbert's witty and satirical lyrics, many of which are still relevant today, and fall in love with the brilliant music of Arthur Sullivan.
