Item description

London OSA 1209 A-4234 (2) two 12" LP record album set in box with libretto. Comes with 12 cast autographs on the libretto title page including the conductor Isidore Godfrey. Other cast member signatures include Donald Adams, Gillian Knight, John Reed, Jeffrey Skitch, Ann Hood, Anthony Raffell, David Palmer, George Cook, and others. Two ticket stubs, one from the Colonial Theater dated October 21, and another from the Savoy Theatre dated November 5, are taped to the libretto title page. Also included is a double-sided handwritten and personally signed letter from the conductor Isidore Godfrey on D'Oyly Carte Opera Company letterhead dated August 2, 1965. In addition there is a personally signed typewritten letter also from Mr. Godfrey, dated July 3, 1965. Additional extras include a 50-page Playbill from the performance at the Colonial Theatre for the week of October 19, 1964 including a "corrections" insert. Plus there is a 14-page Playbill from Boston's Savoy Theatre for the same cast production. Finally, we are including a Boston newspaper photo clipping with a caption pertaining to an outdoor impromptu concert by cast members apparently for publicity purposes. The clipping was enclosed in the box by the previous owner who had collected all this wonderful memorabilia. Condition: Records are a strong VG. Box is VG. Comments: Isidore Godfrey (27 September 1900 - 12 September 1977) was musical director of the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company for 39 years, from 1929 to 1968. Godfrey led the company in numerous tours, both domestic and foreign, during his tenure, and he conducted most of the company's recordings over that long period. H.M.S. Pinafore; or, The Lass That Loved a Sailor is a comic opera in two acts, with music by Arthur Sullivan and a libretto by W. S. Gilbert. It opened at the Opera Comique in London, England, on 25 May 1878 and ran for 571 performances, which was the second-longest run of any musical theatre piece up to that time. H.M.S. Pinafore was Gilbert and Sullivan's fourth operatic collaboration and their first international sensation.
