Gilbert and Sullivan in Rome
This evening we enjoyed a performance of Trial by Jury. I sang this operetta with a community chorus in San Clemente, California, when I was in high school, so I was quietly singing along with all of the songs. Every October a group of people here in Rome get together to put on an operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan in February. This year Trial by Jury was paired with Cox and Box and presented in the auditorium of St. Stephen's School on the Aventine Hill. Three of my colleagues from school were part of the production.
