Starring Jim Broadbent, Timothy Spall and Lesley Manville
Introduced by Jim Stebbings, historian of the musical theatre.
A witty and entertaining dramatisation of the story of the famous partnership between the lyricist William Gilbert and the composer Arthur Sullivan. With a wealth of authentic Victorian detail, this account of the lives of the musical duo concentrates on the good-natured antagonism between the two creative geniuses, focusing on the turning point on their road to fame and riches – the production of The Mikado.
