Possibly the best G&S on film or tape
First of all, this version seems absolutely complete in both songs and dialogue. It is ever so Victorian, as G&S should be for its fullest effect, done absolutely straight-faced, and has the best Sorcerer I have ever seen. The Chorus, at least, may be pre-dubbed, and may consist of dancers lip-synching the voices of unseen singers. With this BBC series it is hard to tell; but if lip-synched, it is done very well. Since there is only one available recording of this operetta on Decca label (and that might be fast going out of print), I made a cassette of the sound track of this video to play in my car. The overture is also given complete, though the Director decided to play it during the final credits--which, by the way, show Wells in heaven! Altogether a superior treatment of what might be the least known of the major Savoy works. Note: there will soon be a version of this very tape with sub-titles! Keep an eye open for that gem.
