SPEAKERS (ZOOM) MEETING - 25th November 2020 - Feedback

A very professional 45 min talk on the Heritage of Gilbert & Sullivan outlining their essential part of this
country's cultural heritage and how G&S can be solely acknowledged with the origins of today's musical
theatre! 
An interesting input on the personal background of both Sullivan and Gilbert who were from very
different social backgrounds working together very successfuly for 25 years producing 14 shows which
are still performed throughout the world today ... 140+ years after they were written.   
An excellent presentation by Bernard Lockett who is an author and BBC TV & Radio presenter and a
Trustee of Harrogate's International Gilbert & Sullivan.   
Thank you for making our first Zoom experience for 50+ members so enlightening.

Extracts from recent G & S Festival Seasons can be accessed at:  Gilbert & Sullivan Operettas
