The Ohio Light Opera at The College of Wooster is the only professional repertory company in the United States devoted exclusively to the performance of late 19th and early 20th century operetta. In addition to Gilbert and Sullivan, they perform many classics of the European and American operetta repertoire. All are performed in English, with many of the foreign-language works specially translated for the Ohio Light Opera. This book is a personal memoir as well as a history. Includes many color and black-and-white illustrations.
