Wakefield Gilbert & Sullivan Society

2018 – Trial By Jury and The Zoo

Trial By Jury and The Zoo – 16th and 17th March 2018

Performed at Sandal Methodist Church, Barnsley Road, Wakefield.

Trial By Jury was written by Gilbert and Sullivan and The Zoo has music by Arthur Sullivan but lyrics by B. C. Stephenson. They were both written around the same time i.e. 1875, so the music of Sullivan can be compared between the two operas.
