Additional Info

This is the tale of a wandering minstrel who falls in love with the beautiful ward of the Lord High Executioner of Titipu. Set in a fantastical and imagined Japanese society.

Now any band of moderate skill can provide rich, full sound accompaniment and still be in balance with the most underdeveloped solo voice. The parts are clear, easy to read, accurate and authentic. In addition-- there is available the most complete and accurate production guide compiled by an expert on traditional Gilbert and Sullivan movements. It contains all information necessary for a successful production-- and allows the most inexperienced director to mount an authentic traditional performance with ease.
