The Sorcerer

W. S. Gilbert (1836 - 1911)

Alexis Pointdextre gets his family sorcerer to brew up a love potion. But what happens when it gets out of control? This two act operetta was a success and convinced Gilbert and Sullivan (sorry - no music in our recording of this) to go ahead and collaborate on H.M.S. Pinafore the next year. - Summary by ToddHW
