Asimov's Annotated Gilbert and Sullivan(1988)
(A book in the Asimov's Annotated series)
A non fiction book by Isaac Asimov
Isaac Asimov brings his masterful wit and understanding to a complete annotation of the classic works of Gilbert and Sullivan. Asimov offers a fresh and illuminating interpretation of the artists' fourteen famous operettas. He guides the read through every word, reference, and innuendo that needs clarification. With enthusiasm and insight, he identifies all the major characters, describes specific settings, and brings to light pertinent background information, such as when and where each play opened, how it was received by critics and audiences at the time, how its title was derived and more. Beautifully illustrated.
