CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
The libretto has survived, but no musical score was ever published. Sullivan when questioned about this said he had saved up the tunes for other operettas; indeed those familiar with Sullivan's music will recognise many a familiar tune! A company of actors blunders into the presence of the Gods on Mount Olympus. The Olympians have fallen on hard times, and persuade the actors to take over their divine functions with comically disastrous results!Music A.Sullivan. Lyrics W.S.Gilbert.
