One of the most sparkling of all the Gilbert and Sullivan operas, The Gondoliers is here presented in delightful narrative and colorful pictures, decorated with the melodies of all its famous songs.

The charm, wit and gaiety of this story of the two gondoliers—one of whom is the King of Barataria—who jointly rule their monarchy on democratic principles; of Casilda, who, as a baby, had wed one of them; and of Luiz the drummer whom she loves; unfold in a manner almost as vivid and delightful as the actual performance on the stage of this beloved opera.
