Gilbert & Sullivan – Three Little Maids

An evening pause: From the movie Topsy-Turvy (2000), Shirley Henderson, Dorothy Atkinson and Cathy Sara singing. The movie is about the creation of Gilbert & Sullivan’s The Mikado. Not surprisingly, the best scenes in the movie are the scenes where they perform songs from the operetta, such as this 2010 evening pause.

Gilbert & Sullivan – I am the Monarch of the Sea

An evening pause: From Gilbert & Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore.

I always voted at my party’s call,
And I never thought of thinking for myself at all.

Chorus.
He never thought of thinking for himself at all.

I thought so little, they rewarded me
By making me the Ruler of the Queen’s Navee!
