By William S. Gilbert and Arthur S. Sullivan
or The Lass That Loved a Sailor
Rivaled in its success only by The Mikado, Gilbert and Sullivan's comic opera HMS Pinafore continues to rank among the most popular works by the famed duo of librettist and songwriter. Popular from the start, the work contains some of Gilbert's most clever flashes of wit and a number of Sullivan's most charming melodies. Moreover, Gilbert's satirical attitude toward matters nautical during England's Victorian era and Sullivan's parody of "sea music" are enjoyed and appreciated today as much as they were over 100 years ago.
