The Monday Cartoon, June 2, 2014

This week’s cartoon will be understood best by folks who sing.  To reproduce my copyrighted cartoon in any way, first request permission by contacting me through my Contact page, and explain the particulars of where you are considering publishing it.

It was prompted by my attending a rehearsal for the show whose poster art took up my last few posts – ‘Princess Ida.’  The music at last night’s rehearsal, accompanied by members of the Bucks County Symphony Orchestra, was stunning.  Not just because of the tenors, mind you, although there were a few outstanding young fellas of that part, but the lyricism and lushness of Gilbert & Sullivan’s profusion of song in this production.  And not even just the vocal parts – the intros and counterpoints that the orchestra plays, almost incidentals, are over-the-top gorgeous.  I highly recommend the show, which runs only one weekend, June 13 and 14.  Most of the info is in the ad below, the rest is at the website of the Bucks County Gilbert & Sullivan Society.
