Sullivan ranges widely in his borrowing. The heroine of Pirates, the demure Mabel, pinches her cadenza from the courtesan Violetta of La traviata. And Mabel's aria is derived from the graceful tradition of the waltz~song that Golll\od had popularized. And where would G&S be without the sparkling model of Offenbach's Couplets, those melodious and witty songs that so captivated the imperial court of Napoleon ill and I I Jl 1 'OQ hn, 7 '99 '1\tlaotenatee Saturday: 2:00.

In February 1880, after the triwnphant opening of Pirates in New York, Sullivan paid into his account ,129.50 and ,208.60 at dates only a week apart. hnmediately thereafter, your readers might be interested to know, he and his party proceeded to enjoy a tour to Niagara where "we went under the falls with guide and proper tarpaulin dresses!" On they travelled to Ottawa to .visit with the Govemor General, Lord Lome and his wife Princess Louise, where, at Govenuneilt House, Sullivan had the thrill of "Tobogganing." In my timetravelling imagination, I can visualize our eeoc kids as part of that scene. They might have Hess; Measha Gosman, Lori Klassen & others.
