HASH(0xa3732f54) out of 5 stars The Savoy Operas Review July 10 2014
By Elizabeth Dokulil - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you, like me, am a fan of the Gilbert & Sullivan Operas you will revel in this edition.
It may be a paper back, but the print is easy to read and it's light to hold
I've just recently sourced all the Operas from the local library which is why I want thi book
I watch the DVD and sing along to all the words
Strange I used to have a copy but gave it away when I downsized 18 years ago
I couldn't be without it I decided when I listen to the Dvd's so went and looked at Amazon and lo and behold there was a copy that was no too expensive
'Oh joy, oh rapture' Amazon, you have made this weekend a treat to look forward to - Tarantara, Tarantara

HASH(0xa37d11bc) out of 5 stars Quite Perfect Jan. 3 2013

I purchased the librettos in order to follow along, sing along with the music, and found it great fun. Either you love G&S or hate it, and I love it. What a pleasure to have a copy on my Kindle. Thanks so much.

This book has the complete libretti for all the G & S shows it is interesting to see the period jokes and then the broader, timeless humor. Great Book!

I'm very happy with this book - I just wish I'd had the sense to ask you about it before! I could probably have wandered into a book shop, but these days that's not so easy, so I'm glad to use my computer to save me walking. I do get to see the occasional Gilbert & Sullivan production, but this book will make it easier to enjoy the dialogue.

A delight to be able to 'sing' along with whichever G&S favorite I'm listening to. Very informative as well. So glad to have chosen this collection of libretti.
