This enlightening and entertaining book follows the growth of one of Southampton’s oldest institutions from a small operatic group performing Gilbert and Sullivan for pennies a ticket to a thriving and award-winning company that produces everything from classic operas to modern musicals.
Using archive material, newspaper reviews, committee notes and reminiscences, this definitive guide reveals the trials and triumphs, silliness and sadness behind the 123 shows performed by Southampton Operatic Society over the last 90 years.
