ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Thespis was the first collaboration between dramatist W.S. Gilbert and composer Arthur Sullivan. No musical score of Thespis was ever published, and most of the music has been lost. Thespis premiered in London at the Gaiety Theater on December 26, 1871, advertised as "An entirely original Grotesque Opera in Two Acts". Like many productions at that theater, it was written in a broad, burlesque style, considerably different from Gilbert and Sullivan's later works. It was considered a success, for a Christmas entertainment of the time, and closed on March 8, 1872, after a run of 63 performances. Now, 12-time Grammy winning music Producer, Thomas Z. Shepard, has written brilliant new music to accompany the original libretto in a vibrant homage to Arthur Sullivan’s legendary orchestrating style.
