Sorcerer 1916D'Oyly Carte Opera Company

Read more about the opera Sorcerer

This was a revival of the first full-length Gilbert and Sullivan entertainment.  It had not been performed for many years and this was an entirely new staging.  It was deemed to be a complete success, well worthy of inclusion in the D'Oyly Carte company's touring repertoire.

On this occasion, like Pinafore and Pirates in later seasons, it was paired with a curtain-raiser in the delightful form of Trial By Jury.
