The OAE teams up with big-band leader John Wilson for its first full-length performance of a Gilbert and Sullivan opera, as well as hits from G&S favourites including The Mikado, The Pirates of Penzance and HMS Pinafore.
Hear them as you’ve never quite heard them before, performed on instruments from the time the music was written.
