Gilbert, Sullivan, Carte and other Victorian era British composers, librettists and producers, as well as the contemporary British press and literature, called works of this kind "comic operas" to distinguish their content and style from that of the often risqué continental European operettas that they wished to displace. Fitz-Gerald wrote his book, The Story of the Savoy Opera, in 1924, when these other pieces were still within living memory. But over time, all of the works produced at the Savoy by composers and librettists other than Gilbert and Sullivan were largely forgotten.

2001), and John Wolfson's Final Curtain: The Last Gilbert and Sullivan Operas (1976), Carolyn Williams's book makes a vital contribution to a field of unusually high quality if not density. Organized in an appealingly elegant evolutionary arc, the book moves through three developmental phases of the W. S.

Williams discusses each work with a peripheral vision that animates the complex domain each opera commands without allowing the rhetorical chronology to muddy the book's analytical clarity.
