Edinburgh Gilbert & Sullivan Society January Meeting

January 1994

About this memory

This meeting took the form of a master class and featured Kenneth Sandford and Roberta Morrell, both of whom had been members of the old D'Oyle Carte Opera Company. Ken was famous for his portrayal of the major bass/baritone roles such as Poo Bah in Mikado, Wilfred Shadbolt in Yeomen of the Guard, Don Alhambra in Gondoliers and many more. Roberta had played all the smaller mezzo roles such as Peep-Bo and Cousin Hebe in Mikado and HMS Pinafore. They are being introduced by Ian Lawson from the Edinburgh Society and the meetings took place in the small rehearsal room downstairs.
