CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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.
