“Vocal villainies all desire to shirk”

Hi guys! I’m back! And speaking of back, here’s two ways we’re going back in time today:

1. Two weeks ago I saw The Mikado at Wolf Trap and it was pretty awesome. I LOVE Gilbert and Sullivan.

2. So here’s one of my favorite songs from my second favorite G&S operetta, as performed at the Stratford Festival in 1982. If you were alive in 1982*, please try not to bump into your old self while you’re there – I hear it causes all kinds of fuzziness in the space-time continuum.

* I wasn’t!

About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.

  1. Fabulous! I’ve played in the orchestra for quite a few G&S productions over the years and recognise they’ve introduced a few musical innovations which work very well.
