Prof. John W. Barker has written a wonderful piece on Gilbert and Sullivan, their backgrounds, the collaboration, with interesting details about the work they produced. The mission of the Madison Savoyards is to present the works of Gilbert and Sullivan with careful attention to the elements that made them so great. Prof. Barker's article provides much insight into these unique creations.
