General Information

MITG&SP performed Utopia, Ltd. in the Spring of 1996. The show was first produced in 1893 and was the largest and most lavishly produced of the Savoy operas. The story is concerned with the adventures of the natives of a South Sea kingdom as they install British institutions on their island, and contains the usual Gilbertian elements of satire (here, directed primarily at the easy -- and often ridiculous -- assumptions of superiority that lay behind British colonialism), wit, and romance.

Here are some pages relating to the show:
