H.M.S. Pinafore [electronic resource]: Stratford Festival Classics

Earning rave reviews during its run at Ontario's Stratford Shakespeare Festival, this unforgettable Gilbert and Sullivan operetta takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to British class structure, the admiralty, and the ruling classes. It's also a love story with a multitude of permutations. Josephine (Katherine Terrell) plans to elope with sailor Ralph Rackstraw (James McLean), but their plans are spoiled by villainous Dick Deadeye (Eric Donkin). In the meantime, Josephine's father has promised her hand in marriage to the pompous and elderly Sir Joseph Porter. Everyone is dissatisfied until Little Buttercup (Patricia Kern), a Portsmouth bumboat woman, discloses a startling, decade-old secret and enables love to triumph.

The Mikado [electronic resource]: Stratford Festival Classics

The Stratford Shakespeare Festival's stunning production of Gilbert and Sullivan's classic comic opera was a blockbuster hit that went on to garner acclaim in Toronto, London, and New York. Cloaked in the guise of a Japanese musical drama, The Mikado is a spoof of Victorian English society. The plot involves the transformation of the dishonest Ko-Ko from lowly tailor and prisoner in a country jail to the rank of Lord High Executioner. While avoiding the particulars of his job, he must maneuver for the hand of his beloved Yum-Yum, who loves Nanki-Poo - a wandering minstrel and, secretly, the Imperial Prince.
