DescriptionA Double-Bill of The Best of The Worst (After The Carpet Quarrel, The Finest Music from Gilbert and Sullivan’s "The Grand Duke" and "Utopia, Ltd.") AND Cox and Box.

The Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company and Transgressive Theatre-Opera partner for an evening of wonderful music from two of Gilbert and Sullivan's works that are very seldom produced, and for a fully-staged version of Cox and Box, for which Sullivan supplied the music.

The new concert musical review, The Best of The Worst, After the Carpet Quarrel, The Finest Music in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Grand Duke and Utopia, Ltd., is conceived, curated, and will be narrated by Transgressive Theatre-Opera's Aaron Hunt. It examines the final two operettas cobbled together by Gilbert and Sullivan after their partnership began to unravel, via a compilation of the very best arias, duets, trios, quartets, quintets, and choruses from these two works.

This new piece is paired with a fully-staged production of the Burnand/Sullivan gem, Cox and Box. Written for three men, two of whom occupy the same apartment at different times of the day according to the machinations of the third, finds the two rakes discovering that they have made love to, and then connived to flee from the same woman. Singing the three gents are sopranos Teaira Burge and Celeste Peake, and mezzo-soprano Susan Gosdick.
