 About the Book 

Read on my Kindle as part of The Complete Plays of Gilbert and Sullivan and watched video from YouTube (although not quite simultaneously as the production had significant deviations from the original text).I felt that although the concept was funny, the execution was only so-so. The details of this operetta are more dated than in many of the others. I read a lot of Victorian British authors so I could follow many of the references but I think this could be successfully modernized (something similar to the Steve Martin movie Roxanne update of the Rostand play).
