Label: Naxos Opera

Alfred Cellier was a contemporary of Arthur Sullivan as a Chapel Royal chorister, and would later conduct several Gilbert and Sullivan productions. With its rural tale of disguise and romantic scheming, its jaunty tunes, lively characters and farcical comedy, Cellier s light opera, Dorothy, has been almost entirely forgotten today.

It had the longest run of any 19th-century piece of musical theatre, seeing off The Mikado and Ruddigore, and became such a popular hit in its day that the box office profits were able to fund the building of the Lyric Theatre on London s Shaftsbury Avenue. The work is receiving on this release its world premiere recording, presented by The Victorian Opera.
