"Trial by Jury" and "Cox and Box": U-M Gilbert & Sullivan Society.

  Ann Arbor Observer tree logo   < less

Apr. 30-May 2. This popular local troupe premiers 2 one-act comic operas, prerecorded and edited into a film. Lori Gould directs Trial by Jury (1875), Gilbert & Sullivan's earliest surviving collaboration. The plot, a lampoon of a breach-of-promise trial, is one of Gilbert's zaniest and most biting satires. Subtitled A Dramatic Cantata in One Act, it contains not a word of spoken dialogue, but its score features some of Sullivan's best operatic parodies, including a marvelous spoof of Handel. Adellyn Geenen directs Cox and Box, a musical adaptation of John Maddison Morton's immensely popular Victorian farce about a conniving landlord who rents an apartment to 2 different tenants, one who works days and one who works nights-and both of whom are also unwittingly engaged to the same woman. Although it formed part of the D'Oyly Carte Company's regular repertoire, Cox and Box (1866) is not a Gilbert & Sullivan collaboration. F. C. Burnham, later the editor of Punch, wrote the script to go with a Sullivan score that sparkles with an exuberance and freshness evocative of English music halls.
On-demand viewing starts at noon and is available for 12 hours, for URL see muto.umich.edu. Tickets $12 (students & seniors, $10; household of 4 or less, $15; group viewing of 4 or more, $20.
