Yes... having discovered I'm far from the only one who likes a bit of G&S, I thought where better to post something than here. So who's been to what recently, and how was it... etc etc!

I like Gilbert & Sullivan but I have never heard any live. (Not since our school did 'Patience'...but let's draw a veil over that...)

Yeoman of the Guard will be on BBC2 this Saturday, a broadcast of last Saturday's Prom.

Thanks David! I'll set the recorder... although if it was a prom I guess it may be music only, which isn't really the same. Well, that in theory brings the number up to four people - if the other two finally get onto the thread!

I've been to three in the last three weeks (Pirates of Penzance, Ruddigore and The Grand Duke), all at Buxton, around CRF. An interesting bit of variety. Lynda discovered Cris Dove is a fan at CRF - I discovered Paul Bain is too - going to the Buxton festival but somehow not the same times as me.

So let's see else owns up!!

I think they will do it "semi staged", i.e. will have costumes and a bit of acting but not a full production.

Pirates is over-exposed Wink . Ruddigore is brilliant. And I don't know The Grand Duke at all.

I'd agree Pirates is over-exposed, but then it's also possibly the easiest to get a newbie into...? It's also my favourite or at least one of, along with Ruddigore and Utopia Limited.

I recently bought the 80s DVD (TV) box set - which is VERY 80s. I good reminder but production is not what I would choose. Watched Iolanthe last weekend and the production made it a struggle. At the weekend I bought a few of the Buxton festival DVDs, so I'll watch them when Lynda goes off to Japan in a few weeks!

Must get around to updating this - counting Buxton and the two weeks that Lynda was in Japan, I've watched everything except Thespis (which I don't have on DVD), and (considering Lynda was in Japan) The Mikado. The Buxton DVD's aren't too bad, although as they are recorded live on the fly, you get what they chose to mix as they did it. Sound is actually quite good and close-up video is reasonable, but not too impressed with longer distance video.
