Thespis was the first collaboration between Gilbert and Sullivan. Even though the script is still with us, the score has been lost. Politely describe as an “opera grotesque”, it was actually a Victorian-era burlesque. Using music from Sullivan’s other works with Gilbert, we have reconstructed a score and produced a vibrant and evanescent show with all the colour, movement and topsy-turveydome humour from two young men that didn’t know any better.  As opposed to their later works from two older gentlemen should have known better. Yes, it’s Gilbert and Sullivan, but nothing like any other Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta.
