Gilbert and Sullivan's famous Savoy operas, such as H.M.S. Pinafore and The Mikado, are well known in every part of the English-speaking world.and yet; having been written a century ago, many of the terms are unfamiliar to modern audiences. This led Harry Benford to publish the first edition of this comprehensive lexicon back in 1978. Now he has prepared this new edition. In it he has doubled the number of entries and introduced many illustrations and guides to pronunciation. A totally new addition is the complete libretto for The Zoo, an increasingly popular curtain-raiser for the standard Savoy operas. Professor Benford is a semi-retired professor of engineering and a Gilbert & Sullivan hobbiest of several decades' stand¬ing. He and his wife have long been intimately associated (as faculty advisors) with the University of Michigan Gilbert & Sullivan Society. They are inveterate travelers and have developed a worldwide network of friends who share their love for the Savoy.operas. Many of those friends, both in the United States and abroad have rendered willing assistance in putting this book together. Their expert criticism and advice assure that this publication will be looked upon as the definitive G. & S. dictionary for years to come. . Revised & enlarged.
