H.M.S. Pinafore / Trial By Jury

Trial by Jury is a comic opera in one act, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W. S. Gilbert. Initially it was played last on a triple bill; the other two works on opening night were Jacques Offenbach’s La PĂ©richole and Charles Collette’s one-act farce Cryptoconchoidsyphonostomata, which was immediately thereafter replaced with another work.

H.M.S. Pinafore, or The Lass that Loved a Sailor, is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W. S. Gilbert. It is one of the Savoy Operas, and the first big hit by Gilbert and Sullivan. This work was Gilbert and Sullivan’s fourth operatic collaboration.

Staged on its Centenary this was the fifth outing for Pinafore with this company.

Maureen Hope-Wynne was the well respected resident director of Gemini Opera who also performed at Richmond Theatre.
