And I thought I was the only person on the face of the Earth who loved G & S!


The Mikado clip brings back happy memories. My husband played Pish-Tush in a production a few years ago.

"Patience" is one of my favorite G&S works, and I just love the list of names that comprises "The Heavy Dragoon" (aka "If you want a receipt for that popular mystery"). No good recordings of it on YouTube, but I'm impressed by anyone who can bring together Dickens, Thomas Aquinas, Hannibal and Madame Tussad in one song.
